Complex and deep. Bread crust, varnish, nutmeg.
The Chardonnay Pontserme 2017 from Domaine Ricardelle de Lautrec has a beautiful golden colour.
On the nose it’s complex and deep. It opens with a distinctive note of bread crust. It then unfolds with varnish, candied lemon peel, almond, vanilla and spices, jack fruit, nutmeg…
The mouthfeel is round and spicy with a soft acidity.
On the palate the almond paste, jack fruit, nutmeg, vanilla are back.
The finish is medium long.
Very, very nice wine.
How it's made
Domaine Ricardelle de Lautrec
Domaine Ricardelle de Lautrec is located in the Languedoc wine region of France. It’s not at all far from the sea and a stone’s throw from the border with Spain.
Domaine Ricardelle de Lautrec went organic twenty years ago, one of the pioneer estates in the region. It has also recently started to vinify natural wines with no added sulphites. The decision came from Lionel, the estate owner. Being Lionel sensitive to sulphites himself, he decided to experiment making wine without any amount added.
The test was successful and that’s how the estate started making natural wines for its client as well as for the family’s consumption!Link to here...
