Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Here is the wine you should choose if you are looking for a fruity wine that has a persistent taste in mouth. As soon as it is opened, it releases fragrances of almond, white flowers and yellow fruits. Lively, its attack is also fresh. In mouth, its fruity taste unveils notes of peach and vanilla, persistent in mouth after the finish.
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.
