A wonderful yellow coloured wine with light green tints. Floral aromas alongside peach and pear bring delight to the drinker. This excellent wine gives homage to the great Burgundian monastic houses.
Grape varieties: 100% Chardonnay.
Alc. 13.5% vol. Vegan.
The abbeys of Cluny and Cîteaux, and their almost 3000 daughter houses, are responsible for the development of the great Burgundian vineyards which produced Chardonnay. Further afield and even to this day these two Burgundian abbeys are responsible for almost all the greatest vintages in the world. In honour of this unparalleled heritage the monks Le Barroux have produced a Chardonnay worthy of this glorious past. Connoisseurs of Burgundian Wines will discover to their delight that this wine can stand shoulder to shoulder with many of its officially labelled AOP sisters to the north.
The harvesting of these grapes is done in the cool of the first light of dawn with each grape strictly inspected for its ripeness and health. The pressing is done at low pressure directly with the clarification of the mush done by cold sedimentation.
The vinification process is done in concrete tanks under controlled temperature: the fermentation is done slowly in order to extract the fresh aromas of the grapes. The wine is then put up on a thin layer of lees over 6 months.
13.5% ABV. Vegan.
This Chardonnay pairs well with a large variety of light salads, mild creamy cheeses and Mediterranean seafood dishes.
We enjoyed this fantastic wine and with a plate of Scotland’s finest langoustines.
Quietly pursuing an authentic Benedictine life of work and prayer, the monks of The Abbey of Sainte-Madeleine du Barroux have flourished since the establishment and construction of their monastery. Whilst young men from around France come here to dedicate themselves to the spiritual life, lifting their voices in praise according to ancient Latin chants seven times daily, they also pour their energy into producing wines to the highest standards, and use the knowledge they gain through the study of the land and vines to benefit the small winegrowers in the community around them.
