Vinification:

Fermentted in French Oak barrels

Matured for 8 - 10 months in French oak barrels of which 20% were new barrels.

The wines are then clarified through Bentonite and then filtered



Winery information:

Louis Latour came to the Ardèche in 1979 attracted by its climate and the clay limestone soils that are perfect for the Chardonnay vine. The consistent climate and abundant sunshine perfectly ripen the grapes,

whilst the drying Mistral wind eliminates the risk of rot. Grand Ardèche is treated as if it were grown in one of the prestigious vineyards of the Côte-d’Or. Fully-ripened grapes are selected and pressed lightly before being aged in oak barrels made at the Latour cooperage in Beaune.

The soil in the vineyards of Ardeche is of chalk and clay

The average age of the vines are 20 years with an average yield of 45 hl/ha.

Harvested by machine.



Tasting Note:

This wine has a rich lemon-gold with a ripe open nose of fresh tropicaland citrus fruits combined with smoky vanilla oak notes. In the mouth it is creamy with layers of ripe fruit balanced by freshness and a long smooth finish.

Food Recommendation:

Serving temperature 10 - 12°

Serve with Seafood
