Tête en l’Air, Maison Ventenac

£17.00

A happy accident Chardonnay…

Winemakers Stephanie & Olivier Ramé, a husband and wife team, are the third generation of their family to run the show at Maison Ventenac. Their vineyards are in Cabardès, the only Languedoc appellation that allows both Atlantic and Mediterranean grape varieties, so offering a unique exploration of flavours. Their specific location around the village of Ventenac-Cabardès is famed for its limestone, chalky soils, which they say gives their wines their saline & fresh characters. The winemaking philosophy is to allow their unique terroir to shine through in the wines, presenting them as naturally as possible and raising in tuns, terra cotta urns and concrete vats to enhance their purity. 

This is an unoaked Chardonnay from those limestone soils the grape loves so much. With their head in the air (tête en l’air), they ‘forgot’ to put their Chardonnay in barrel and it all turned out just fine. The result is a fresh Chardonnay with complex aromas of exotic fruits and toasty notes. Lots of citrus on the palate, with a mineral finish.
