Domaine Bouche Etre a l'Ouest Chardonnay
This product is currently sold out.
Bruno hails from Epernay, and his family still makes Champagne in Pierry. But he also created his own domaine in Limoux – many would say the ancestral home of bottle fermented sparkling wine – and today farms 60 hectares of vines on limestone soils (certfied Terre Vitis), making still and sparkling wines.
This is an unfined and unfiltered Chardonnay, dry and still (despite the crown cap) from historic Limoux. The Chardonnay is unoaked, pure and 'fulsome.' Fermentation is done is stainless steel using selected yeasts. Natural malolactic gives the wine's otherwise crisp acidity a rounded edge whilst delivering an uncompromising freshness. No oak was used in the making of this wine.
NOT sparkling, despite it's crown seal and hefty bottle. This is a dry, crisp, fresh chardonnay with crisp green apple, crunchy pear, and classic oyster shell salinity, with a full, rich body of tangy yoghurty-ness.
