Domaine La Croix Belle Caringole Chardonnay
The Domaine La Croix Belle estate has been in the hands of the Boyer family for some 300 years – it’s a site rich in the history of the region. It was current owner Jacques Boyer who pioneered the radical shift towards production of quality fruit as early as the 1970s, and replanted his vineyards to strive for the quality he felt his unique terroir could attain (a good decade before the French Government’s vine pull scheme was rolled out across the Languedoc region). That hard work paid off, and the wines these days have a wonderful elegance and concentration to them, representing superb value for money.
This sophisticated Chardonnay offers a huge amount of depth and flavour- it is a wine we often enjoy ourselves at home as it really does offer superb value for everyday drinking. The colour is deep, with golden hues, hinting at what is to follow. Refreshing and intense, notes of citrus fruits and dried nuts (hazelnut, almond) come to the fore. It has persistence on the palate, with a great deal of finesse and mineral character.
