Maison Louis Latour is one of the most innovative producers in Burgundy whilst maintaining its traditional image. With a view to expanding the business in 1979, the valley of the Ardeche river with its clay and limestone-based soils was chosen as the ideal location to produce a top-quality Chardonnay wine. The Chardonnay d'Ardeche is aged in stainless steel vats for approximately 10 months. It is a fresh and easy to drink wine.
Perfect as an aperitif or with charcuterie and white fish .
The Chardonnay de l'Ardche has a beautiful yellow colour with green hints. The wine is fresh revealing aromas of pear and white peach. A refined and balanced wine.
Fermentation: Traditional in stainless steel vats, temperature controlled with complete malolactic fermentation
Ageing: 8 to 10 months ageing in stainless steel vats
