This Premium Chardonnay is one of those treasures that can only be found on a singular land like the Domaine Saint-André. It is the golden gem of the vineyard.

Domaine Saint Andre

In the heart of Languedoc , facing the town of Sète and Mont Saint Clair, cradled by the Lagoon of Thau, the Domaine Saint-André, with an area of ​​30 hectares, brings together all the traditional grape varieties of the Languedoc ( Cinsault, Carignan, Chardonnay, Muscat, Roussanne, Vermentino and Viognier ), to which are added certain Bordeaux grape varieties ( Merlot and Cabernet Franc ). Its vineyard benefits from a Mediterranean climate tempered by maritime influences. Its soil, predominantly clay-limestone, is conducive to the production of excellent quality wines.
This wine has a lustrous golden color. It is complex and expressive with notes of ripe pears and quince. There are subtle aromas of vanilla, honey and marron glacé. The palate is opulent with a silky texture. This wine is well balanced, with subtle toasted oak character.
Enjoy this wine with white meats, pasta carbonara, white truffle risotto, or chicken tagine with cristallized lemon. Serve it slightly chilled
The harvest takes place at night, when the temperatures are the coolest. Gentle pressing of whole bunches in a pneumatic press preserves quality. Fermentation and maturation take place in French new oak barrels of 400 L providing toasty and vanilla notes. 50% of the wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation. The wine is kept on its fine lees for 4 months before bottling.

Wine Merchant Magazine, Tried and Tested, July 2023: "You suspect that most people who like Chardonnay love wines like this, whether or not they say so out loud. From the heart of the Languedoc, this is joyfully old-school, brimming with vanilla and butter, and pears so ripe they've almost liquified. On the finish there's a quirky change of pace and a suggestion of bergamot."
