We finally have the perfect southern French Chardonnay which has been made for us by our friend Bruno Andreu. It has a lovely citrus and fleshy apple quality along with ripe tropical fruit notes. The wine has spent a couple of months in large old oak barrels to give a wonderful texture and a long creamy finish.
Bruno Andreu comes from a family of wine makers and believes in making delicious wines that blend tradition with modernity. The Languedoc in the south of France is sadly too often overlooked but Bruno has the ability to make wonderful wines that are firm favourites here at de Burgh. It’s always great fun tasting the new vintages with Bruno and Oriane. We’re always impressed at how good their fruit is and every year they impress us with something new and tasty. The wines always have a rustic, French country feel to them but are made in a clean, modern, forward thinking manner which makes them extremely appealing. They are a great advert for modern Languedoc wines with a great sense of artisan production, care and terroir for such humble wines.
