Product description

This is Domaine Bousquet’s line starring their best grapes from the “home” vineyard – the original vineyard planted by Jean Bousquet in the late 1990s. This was the terroir that caught Jean’s imagination because it had a rarity – sand. Sandy soil makes for elegant wines (a “must” for this Frenchman). Its low fertility gives desirable vine stress; it is permeable for good drainage and has no salinity issues, often a problem in arid areas. Grapes here are the last to be harvested; the extra hang time ensures heightened richness and body. 100% Chardonnay, clusters are pressed at low temperatures, followed by fermentation and maceration with selected yeast in oak barrels for 30 days. Aged for 10 months in French oak. Tasting Notes: Bright yellow color. Intense white fruits, pear, coconut and vanilla aromas. Smooth and creamy palate with medium to high volume and refreshing acidity.
