Chardonnay, Bel Serrat
" Bel Serrat" is the "beautiful hill" in Occitan, the old Southern French language. It means to us the beautiful, well located and well oriented place for growing Chardonnay in our region.
This fine location is a 5% slope, looking north, crowned by pine trees filtrating the strong winds and keeping the plots fresh during the night. The poor soils limits the yields to 25-30 hl/ha to extract a neat and clear grape expression under our Mediterranean latitude. Its freshness and vivacity are surprising, its white flower aromas, thyme and resin flavours are enjoyable.
Our never ending quest to find the right location for each grape is not limited to our native grape varieties, our curiosity goes further!
