Precise quality management
The grapes for this Vin de France Chardonnay come from different geographic areas which complement each other, giving the wine fruit and freshness. The Chardonnay grapes from the Mediterranean are deliciously ripe which helps create a powerful yet fresh wine with tropical fruit notes. The Chardonnay from the Cotes de Gascogne has distinctive acidity and liveliness, with citrus fruit aromas.
Maison Castel know-how
The Maison Castel teams have excellent, long-standing partnerships in this region which allow them to closely follow the different stages of the vinification process. The grapes are chilled and then gently crushed to extract all their flavours. After cold settling, alcoholic fermentation takes place at a low temperature. An ageing period of 3 – 4 months allows the wine to develop lightly oaked aromas.
