Anne de Joyeuse Orchis Chardonnay Pays D’OC Languedoc, France
SILKY WINE STYLE
Produced in the Languedoc-Roussillion region in France, by Cave Anne de Joyeuse, this Chardonnay comes from the Vin de Pays D’OC appellation. Bright pale gold in color with scents of white flowers on the nose, evolving on the palate towards notes of white fruit and a fresh, citrus finish. Fine and well balanced, it will accompany all sorts of fish dishes and will also be ideal as an aperitif.
WINEMAKER’S NOTES Grapes were pressed directly on their arrival at the cellar, then vinified traditionally and fined at cold temperatures. They are then fermented under controlled temperatures.
