La Galope Chardonnay
Côtes de Gascogne
A lovely Chardonnay that is well-balanced, fresh, round, slightly buttered with notes of honey and lemon. Fresh nose with notes of white flowers, acacia, pear and sweet almonds.
The historic terroir of Armagnac, south of the Landes region, at the foot of the Pyrenees is where the Côtes de Gascogne vineyards cover 20,000 hectares. Vines are planted against a backdrop of rolling hills of clay-loam soil, providing a perfect setting to capture the sun, maximize on the cool nights, make it the best terroir for white wine in southern France. To maintain the aromas, the grapes are harvested early in the morning and immediately taken to the state-of-the-art INERTYS press to reduce risk of oxidation during the delicate pressing phase.
