2016 Les Domaines Robert Vic Vin de Pays d'Oc Chardonnay Comtesse de Marion
The Vic family is a family of fifth generation wine growers situated in a 13th century Château neighboring the Mediterranean Sea. Their guiding philosophy is simple: invest the majority of their time and energy working the vineyards to develop the best quality fruit from which their wines are produced. They farm using neither pesticides nor chemical fertilizers and use only fruit grown on the estate. The Chardonnay “Comtesse de Marion” is vinified in stainless steel, temperature-controlled tanks in order to preserve the aromas and flavors achieved with the family’s dedication and commitment to the vineyard work. To further preserve the wine’s freshness and liveliness, malolactic fermentation is blocked. The result is a wine both refreshing and pleasingly round in texture, a Chardonnay that displays an altogether high level of complexity, for not a very high price. Don’t miss this terrific value!
Classic Chardonnay notes of citrus, apple and peach were found in the aromas and flavors. Clean, crisp, dry and thirst quenching.
Salads, cold shellfish dishes and grilled chicken topped with peach or mango salsa.
