Terre des Chardons Clairette d'Été 2016 Clairette de Bellegarde

Slightly hazy - bottled young and without fining or filtering, it will no doubt settle and clear in a few months. An expressive, leafy/minty nose, with notes of spring flowers, lemon zest, nectarine, garrigue herbs and a hint of stony minerality. The palate is soft and creamy, with flavours of stone fruit, water melon, baked apple, soft citrus zest and fennel, with a really quite unusual (for a white) saline, mineral tang, and a long, gently savoury finish. Close your eyes and you might even think you were drinking a Provence rose. If you like your wines with loads of overt acidity, this may not be for you, but if you fancy an aperitif to go with a bowl of olives, peppers and cured charcuterie, this is the perfect partner. Certified organic and biodynamic.

The nose is wonderfully inviting and fresh, offering zesty soft citrus, peach and spring flower aromas, with subtle notes of garrigue herbs, fennel and wet stone. A proportion of Sauvignon Blanc is less unusual than one might think in southern white wine blends, and this wine shows just how well it can work - it adds a touch of the herbaceous, without imparting any of the variety's "extreme" elements. And it combines beautifully with the gently floral/grapey perfume and flavours of the Viognier and the more secondary/non-fruit elements of the Grenache, in a wine that adds up to more than the sum of its parts. The palate has a zesty, gently pithy citrus quality, more orange than lemon, along with a touch of peachy ripeness, a creamy texture, a modicum of grape tannin and ample acidity. All-in-all, a really charming, refreshing and flavour-filled wine - and for the money, it really is great value. Organic.

Drink Over the next 2 or 3 years
Despite the fact that (at the time of writing - March 2015) this is so recently bottled, it is already nicely integrated and really rather delicious. With a clear straw/gold colour, it is zesty, but beautifully rounded, even soft, with the fruit at the orangey rather than lemony end of the spectrum, combined with peachy, spiced apple pie and floral/honeysuckle aromas and flavours, with some nutty notes putting in an appearance after time in the glass. The texture is gently oily, but the overall effect is of a really sprightly, tasty, elegant and beautifully balanced wine, with a splash of limey acidity and even a modicum of grape tannin. A lovely, quintessentially Languedoc white wine.

Alcohol (a.b.v)
14.0%
Food Chicken, fish with rich sauces, veal, cheese

Drink Over the next 3 to 5 years
80% Roussanne and 20% Marsanne. The former is fermented traditionally, whilst the latter sits on the skins for 15 days, resulting in what is known as an “orange wine”, which adds not only some extra colour to the wine, but also a real depth of aroma and flavour. With a nose of honeysuckle, peach/apricot, wild herbs and fennel, it really does show a lot of complexity for a wine so young. As you might expect, it is quite rich and gently oily, especially with the 'orange' aspect of the Marsanne, but there is also an underlying freshness that comes through on the palate, with a zesty/juicy lemony tang, a certain spiciness and impressive length, not to mention genuine saline minerality. It certainly isn't a glugger, but it is a brilliant food wine, which grows in the glass, and indeed get's better after 2 or 3 days. A fabulous example of how good Languedoc whites can be. Certified organic and biodynamic.

Fermented and aged in 1 year-old oak barrels. As with Le Blanc (above) 20% of the grapes are given the “orange” treatment. The nose is rich and expressive, with notes of lime oil, basil, subtle floral notes and a hint of elderflower-like Sauvignon character. There's also whiff of the sea about it, reminiscent of fresh oysters. It possesses a considerably complex and structured palate, with zesty lime/citrus flavours countered by a peachy/apricotty richness and a gently oily texture, with excellent acidity, a touch of grape skin tannin and a very long, spicy finish. Another lovely wine. Certified organic and biodynamic.

Drink Now, or over the next 5 or more years
A field blend of Chardonnay, Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Chenin Blanc, Petit Manseng, with just a few rows of each variety grown in a vineyard of 0.6 of hectare, typically producing just 1500 bottles each vintage, at around 20 hl/ha. All of the varieties are fermented together then aged for a year in vat, with no oak and little or no added SO2, with only CO2 for protection. Is it stable? Yes! Is it delicious? You bet it is! Lemon zest, apple and hints of apricot on the nose, with plenty of herbaciousness and a good deal of saline/seashell minerality and a subtle "flor" hint. And it gets better and better with air. Those sweet-sour white tree fruit and citrus fruit and herby notes are all present and correct on the palate, with a gentle nuttiness. It is delightfully tangy, initially light and airy, but with an underlying richness that comes from perfectly ripe fruit, with the merest hint of grape tannin and bucket-loads of citrussy acidity and a massive dose of stoney minerality. It really is utterly delicious - and, for the money, a quite remarkable bargain

Limpid, pale gold/straw colour, with a surprisingly complex array of fruit and herbaceous aromas - sage, oregano and crushed nettle, combined with fresh apple and peach, with hints of honey, lanolin and wood smoke. The palate is equally complex - sappy, fresh and mouth-watering, with bags of citrus and tree fruits, almost bone dry, but rounded and quite generous, with a nutty, gently honeyed texture. It also evolves considerably after time in the glass. A cracking little wine, and a real bargain. Lovely!

The estate's top white, from 75 year-old vines. A lovely bright, medium gold colour, with a fabulous nose that covers just about every base, with fruity, zesty, herby, herbaceous, spicy and mineral notes all putting in an appearance. Lime oil, quince, crushed nettles, thyme, mint, coriander and wet stone are just a few of the aromas and flavours I can pick out, in a wine of genuine subtlety and complexity. Tight and focused in the mouth, offering masses of flavour, with ample acidity and plenty of grip, courtesy of extended maceration on the grape skins, followed by a year's ageing in oak barrels. Restrained power and elegance is the order of the day, with a long, cool, minty/spicy finish. And whilst it really is a joy to drink already, I can see it gaining yet more complexity and weight over the next 3 to 5 years, possibly more. Tangy and dry, rather than rich and oily, this is a wine that is closer in style to white Burgundy or old-style Rioja than Rhone. A really cracking wine, which is good to drink now, but will also age nicely for a few years yet.

Ooh, what a fabulous nose! With a heady mix of peach and apricot, melon, pink grapefruit, mandarin and apple (I kid you not - it's all in there!) with background notes of oregano, mint, nettles and honeysuckle, this really is a truly alluring wine. And the palate certainly lives up to the promise of the bouquet, offering up a complex mélange of white fruit flavours, citrus, mixed herbs and hints of licorice and spice, all tightly-knit and wrapped around a core of mouth-watering acidity. Viognier can sometimes be a bit showy and flowery, but 10% each of Grenache Blanc and Muscat add immensely to the whole - Grenache for a bit of herb and spice and "non-fruit" quality, and Muscat for a come-hither grapiness and zest. And it all adds up to a seriously delicious and more-ish wine, to enjoy as an aperitif or with food. An absolute cracker!

The nose is just wonderfully aromatic, complex and full of vivacity - herbaceous and fruity at the same time, with notes of nettles, mint and hay, mingled with fresh apple and peach, a hint of judicious oak and more stony minerality than you can shake a stick at! If it smells good, it tastes even better, with masses of ripe, juicy, garrigue herb-infused stone fruit and soft citrus flavours, again with a pronounced mineral tang and mouth-watering acidity. With genuine complexity, it manages to be soft and approachable, yet beautifully poised and structured at the same time, in a northern Rhône-meets-Burgundy sort of way, with a very long, cool, minty/tangy finish. From one of the great Languedoc growers, this is without a doubt my favourite Languedoc white wine - and an absolute steal at the price. Oh, and if you want to know what the 10% "other" grape variety is that goes into the blend, then feel free to drop us an email - it is a "legal" variety but...... it's a long story! Biodynamic.

This is grown (fairly) high up in the hills of the Terrasses du Larzac, 30 or so km north-west of Montpellier, where the nights are a little cooler and the growing season a couple of weeks longer than further south. If anything, this is even finer and more elegant than the fabulous 2012, in a northern Rhône-meets-Burgundy sort of way. A lovely pale/medium gold colour with green glints. It has a considerably complex nose that exhibits all manner of white fruit, honeysuckle/floral and herb aromas, whilst the palate is the epitome of restrained power - peachy, appley fruit flavours, laced with honey and lemon, a gently oily texture, a modicum of grape tannin, ample acidity and just a hint of warming spice on one long finish. This really is top, top winemaking, and more than a match for more expensive Northern Rhônes. Drink now, or age for another 5 to 10 years. Lovely wine.

The palate offers juicy peach and apple flavours, with a touch of soft citrus, a hint of peppery spice and a lightly nutty/waxy texture, with a gentle richness offset by a touch of grape tannin and fabulous acidity. A really lovely wine, and for a top Languedoc white, worth every penny.

A gorgeous, limpid, translucent pale gold colour. At the time of tasting (June 2017) it has only been in bottle for a few months, so shows a slight CO2 spritz and takes an hour or two in the decanter to settle down and open up. If you can decant for even longer, all the better. Thereafter, the nose is wonderfully complex, heavy with the scents of herbs, spices and stony minerality, at the same time exhibiting myriad aromas of apple and peach, mint, honeysuckle and fennel, with subtle notes of spring blossom and lime oil peeping through. The palate has a rich, creamy, almost oily texture, which is perfectly offset by juicy peach and apple flavours, a rasp of cut lime, garrigue herb and spice. The heightened, limey acidity and intense core of minerality makes for an explosively refreshing, yet considerably complex wine. Without doubt one of the finest Languedoc whites on the market - though our allocation is tiny! A very special wine.

A delightful array of aromas - ripe apples, oranges, passion fruit and lime oil, with subtle notes of garrigue herbs and white pepper. There's also more than a hint of wet stone minerality, in a really quite complex and alluring wine. The palate is oh-so fresh and vibrant, with classic cool-climate apple-tinged Chardonnay fruit, married to lemony/zesty/minerally Chenin Blanc and the more herby, non-fruit character of Mauzac. And it more than equals the sum of its parts, with ripeness of fruit and mineral nervosity in equal measure, and a long, cool, gently minty finish. And before I know it...... my bottle is almost finished. What a lovely wine, which will appeal to lovers or Burgundy and Loire alike.

100% Chardonnay, fermented and aged for 6 months in oak barrels, one-third of which are new. Like the 2012 (above) the nose is crammed full of peach, orange blossom and lime oil aromas, with subtle hints of garrigue herbs, ripe apple and a judicious lick of well integrated oak. The palate is delightfully zingy and taut, courtesy of spiced apple and lemon flavours and quite intense stoney minerality, which is nicely offset by a gently creamy texture and a hint of juicy orange. This is the very antithesis of the typically rich, often intense style of Chardonnay grown in the flatter/hotter areas of Languedoc. A few hundred metres of elevation and the cooler, more temperate climate of Limoux makes all the difference, in a style more redolent of southern Burgundy. A truly elegant and more-ish wine.

An intriguing and rather delightful nose, combining spiced lemon, apple and raisin aromas with notes of honey, orange blossom, mixed herbs and a subtle whiff of oak - like summer in a glass! And whilst Mauzac is typically rather neutral, in terms of fruit aromas/flavours, this one has plenty on show, with bags of zesty citrus and white fruit flavours on the palate, wrapped around a core of tangy acidity, with a definite streak of stony minerality and just the merest hint of oak adding a touch of honey-like richness and texture.

Ultra-pale, bright, limpid straw colour with orange glints, with the vaguest hint of petillance on opening/pouring (courtesy of a slug of CO2 added at bottling, to keep it fresh). And fresh it certainly is - citrus and apple aromas leap from the glass, with hints of garrigue herbs, lime oil, wet stone and iodine adding some complexity. On the palate, there's an initial rush of citrus and rhubarb - really quite mouth-wateringly fresh and zingy, tightly-wound and almost tart to begin with - but after the CO2 has dissipated, it settles down and becomes more rounded and integrated. It's amazing what a good shake of the bottle and a few minutes of air does to it. Not that you lose any of that amazing acidity - if you are looking for a typically rich Languedoc Chardonnay, then you are looking in the wrong place. This is delicate, tightly-wound, tongue-tingling stuff, with a touch of genuine elegance, perhaps more in the way of a young, un-oaked Jura Chardonnay, a Jurancon Sec or even a bone-dry Riesling. Pure as spring water and chock full of steely minerality and juicy citrus, with a long, contrary, dry yet juicy finish. And just 12% abv.Yummy!
