Fruity/aromatic - ROUSSANNE-CHARDONNAY, Félines Jourdan. Côteaux de Bessilles, SW France

2017 ROUSSANNE-CHARDONNAY, Félines Jourdan. Côteaux de Bessilles, SW France

Bin: 122
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Côteaux de Bessilles may sound "niche" but actually covers 7 communes in the heart of the Languedoc, from Montpelier down to Carcassonne.
This is from west of the town of Mèze - close to the coast about half way between Montpelier and Beziers. The estate is on the edge of the huge Thau lagoon.
Grape Variety: 60% Chardonnay, 25% Roussanne, 15% Sauvignon Blanc; fermented slow (6 weeks) and cool in steel tanks, blended in January, then matured on the lees for 3 months before bottling.
Producer: Félines-Jourdan are the largest private producer in the area, with 95 hectares of vineyard, much of it Picpoul de Pinet. It is an entirely family run affair, with Claude Jourdan the winemaker and Serge Jourdan the viticulturalist.
Old Bridge Rating: Dry and fresh, but beautifully perfumed and nicely textured too. Great value.
