Domaine des Montarels | Côtes de Thongue
Made from the best parcels in the domaine and aged in oak barrels this is another example of the excellent quality now emerging from the Côtes de Thongue (we also have the delicious Marquis de Lissac Syrah from the same region).
Our tasting notesA rich but well balanced Chardonnay with bags of tropical fruit character, refreshing acidity, and a long finish. Careful ageing in oak barrels fills it out with just the right amount of toasty vanilla flavours. Extremely tasty and a good match for white meats and creamy fish dishes.
Wine dataGrape variety: Chardonnay
AOC: Vin de Pays des Côtes de Thongue
ABOUT CÔtes de Thongue:Not far from Montpellier in the Languedoc, this Vin de Pays appellation is fast making a name for itself. It benefits from a soft Mediterranean climate and is home to a wide range of wine styles. A quality drive which started in the 70's led to vineyard owners experimenting with a multitude of grape varieties—some indigenous, others less so. Along with Chardonnay you can find, amongst others, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Merlot as well as a host of other white varieties.
