2018 Barrique Blanc, Domaine de la Jasse, Languedoc
Pre-shipment offer | Dispatched from mid-February 2020
In addition to its suite of top-notch reds, Domaine de La Jasse also produces a delicious chardonnay, which should not be missed. Crafted from the estate's cooler vineyard sites, Bruno's Barrique Blanc is an expressive, barrel-aged cuvée, with a real flavour of Burgundy.
From the sun-drenched 2018 vintage, the latest release of La Jasse's Barrique Blanc is warm, ripe and expressive. Tasted blind alongside more famous names from Burgundy, this has on occasion been mistaken for a village wine from the Côte d'Or. The luscious, rounded peach and baked apple flavours are perfectly balanced with a sprightly citrus freshness and remarkable purity. Spring blossom floats on the nose, with orchard fruit in abundance, leading to a rich, textured palate. The oak is at first restrained, but gradually flavours of clove, roasted hazelnut and buttered toast emerge. For a wine made in France's deep south, Brunos understanding of the estate's terroir, and winemaking skill has yielded a chardonnay of real class and elegance
