Domaine Martinolles Chardonnay Languedoc, France 2019Regular price $14.00
The vines, which are planted in chalky soils at elevations ranging from 200 to 600 meters, are worked traditionally without herbicides or fertilizers. Domaine de Martinolles is a member of Terra Vitis, an organization that certifies the practice of sustainable agriculture.
This Chardonnay has a good weight due to the fact that the crushed grapes rest with the skins for a day before pressing and it sees nine months in old oak barrels. To round it out, we get ripe apple and pear fruits with a touch of minerality and a lemony clean finish.
