Les Prunelles is 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. It is the new Macon Village!

The Languedoc region in the south of France has had to work hard to rebrand itself over the past twenty years. The speed at which New World countries have created brands out of grape varieties and bigger companies have dominated shelf space caught European winemakers out. Languedoc wine looked very old fashioned, very quickly. Luckily, we know Bruno Andreu, and Bruno understands how to make delicious wines that blend tradition with modernity. Bruno comes from a family of wine makers and knows how things were but rather than stick to what doesn’t work anymore, Bruno set about creating clean, modern, forward-thinking wines that still retain a little French, rustic charm. They are a great advert for modern Languedoc wines with a sense of artisan production, care and terroir that is refreshing for such humble wines. It is always fun to taste the new vintages with Bruno who constantly amazes us with the quality of the Tendem and Elixir wines but also surprises us each year with beautiful one-offs from grape varieties like Petit Verdot and Petite Syrah.
