Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
This yellow-colored wine with green reflects, has a fresh almond and hazelnuts nose. In mouth, this wine is well-balanced, with a medium body dominated by a woody and toasted aroma. The finale recalls woods associated to fresher notes with a light mentholated taste.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
The bâtonnage (stirring) consists of stirring the wine while it ages with a long stick in order to bring the lees, or sediments, back at the top of the barrels. This process helps give the wine a buttery taste.
Domain and appellation
Since 1995, Les Jamelles has been made up of a unique collection of artisanal grape variety wines from Pays d'Oc. With the Chardonnay Les Jamelles, Catherine Delaunay wanted to show all her burgundy expertise.
- Terroir: The foothills of the Cévennes (clay-limestone and basalt soils), the Hérault plain (rich and pebbly clays), the Aude Valley, and the Limoux region (clay and limestone soils).
- Vinification: 35% of the grape juice is fermented for 3 weeks in oak barrels (new and one year old). It is then matured on lees for 9 months with regular stirring, during which the wine develops its malolactic fermentation. 65% of the grape juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks (18 - 20° C) and does not undergo malolactic fermentation. Final blending before bottling.
