Chardonnay “Grain d’Automne” Pay’s d’Oc IGP Domaine Bergon, 2015
Very beautiful yellow colour with a discreet gold touch, shimmering with green reflections. The nose opens up onto delicate notes of flowers : lime tree, elder, then some fruits appears : peach, fresh grapes, apple. Mineral in the mouth, it’s filled with fat, adorned with a beautiful liveliness highlighting aromas of white flowers. A wine endowed with finesse and complexity that will perfectly match a seafood platter, dessert and fresh fruit.

The tannins are elegant, discreet and well-integrated. The balance and originality of this wine gives it its “cuvée rare” status.
