Maison Louis Latour Arde’che Chardonnay
Maison Louis Latour is one of the most innovative producers in Burgundy whilst maintaining its traditional image. With a view of expanding the business in 1979, the valley of the Ardeche River with its clay and limestone-based soils was chosen as the ideal location to produce a top-quality Chardonnay wine. The Chardonnay d’Ardeche is aged in stainless steel vats for approximately 10 months. It is fresh and easy to drink wine. Fermentation: Traditional in stainless steel vats, temperature controlled with complete malolactic fermentation. 8-10 months ageing in stainless steel vats. This wine is deliciously apple-fresh acidity and a smooth finish.
Les Violettes Cotes Du Rhone
Moillard doesn’t actually own property in Rhone, they purchase grapes from some of the most reputable growers in this region, but one would never know because the wines are absolutely top quality, just as if the grapes were cared for by their own proprietor. Moillard uses newer technology to produce their wines, such as cool fermentation, in combination with the traditional Burgundian maturation in new and old oak. The technology allows good extraction of fruit and bouquet while the tradition produces more depth and complexity. Their Cotes du Rhone is a delicious blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre and it got its name from the actual aromas of violets. Layered aromas of violets, apricots and dried cherry. Palate is full of sweet dark fruit and finish is smooth and dry. Silky smooth tannins make this Cotes du Rhone wonderfully easy drinking, perfect for any occasion.
