Belles du Sud Chardonnay 2015

A pleasant nose of fresh and dried white fruit and honey. At its best within two years of the harvest date. Serve with fish, seafood or white meat, but can also serve perfectly well chilled as an aperitif.

Thus they are ideally suited as a house wine. The bi-cépage Marsanne / Roussanne is made of approximately 60% Marsanne and 40% Rousanne, both typical southern French wite grapes. This gives an expressive, fruity white wine with many applications.
