Barrique Blanc, Domaine de la Jasse 2021
When turning his craftsmanship and terroir savoir-faire to chardonnay, Bruno renders us an elegant and expressive glass every bit as gratifying as his Vieilles Vignes. 'Barrique Blanc' (100% chardonnay, barrel-aged) is sourced from the estate's cooler sites in Limoux, where more temperate micro-climes make for the kind of raciness, concentration and finesse one enjoys in a white wine from the Côte de Beaune. Le Breton's Barrique Blanc is simply a delight to the senses, giving as it does a nose of spring blossom, apricot, brioche and vanilla, and a palate layered with flavours of exotic fruit, clove, roasted hazelnut and buttered toast. A sumptuous pairing with all manner of cuisine.
Excellent wine. Lovely textured Chardonnay with nicely integrated oak. Will get better so Ive saved my other ones for a later date.
