Cour des Dames Chardonnay 2019

Rich and full-bodied, this creamy Chardonnay has aromas of ripe stone fruit thanks to plentiful sunshine in the vineyards. Peach and apricot notes combine with aromas of vanilla and toast from time spent in contact with oak.

What we say

This wine is produced from Chardonnay grape variety grown in different terroirs of the Pays d’Oc region: the foothills of the Cévennes at an altitude of 400 m on clay-limestone soils, the Hérault plain : rich stony clay and basaltic soil alongside the sea, the Aude Valley : clay-limestone soils of the Minervois region giving fruity wines and the Limoux region with altitudes between 150 and 400 meters. Controlled pruning (trellised) and yields. More than 40% of the final blend is put in contact with oak. Slow alcoholic fermentation (3 to 6 weeks) with controlled temperatures. The wine is aged for 9 months in contact with oak on fine leed with lees stirring. Partial malolactic fermentation on a part of the cuvée to give butten notes and complexity to the whole cuvée.

 

What they say

With its clear and limpid lovely golden colour, this wine has fruity aromas of pear and apricot, white flowers and hazelnut, with a slightly buttery finish and subtle vanilla hints. Very nice minerality and freshness.

About the producer Badet Clement & CIE

La Cour des Dames wines, hailing from different Pays d’Oc terroirs, pay homage to an illustrious period in Occitan culture. The troubadours, celebrated poet-musicians, devoted themselves to lyric art and courted ladies. Using their oratorical talents at sumptuous banquets served in their honour, they also introduced their audiences to wine tasting. By combining wines, gastronomy, music and poetry they were the precursors of a certain Mediterranean art of living that has lasted to the present day.
