Domaine Begude Chardonnay 'Etoile' 2015 - magnums
ORGANIC / VEGAN / HAND PICKED / GOLD MEDAL WINNER
Begude’s top Chardonnay - at its absolute prime.
85% barrel (old) fermented with classic brioche, apple & pear notes. Rich enough to pair with white meats and strong cheeses like Comte, Gruyere and Cornish Gouda. Better than many white Burgundies selling for twice the price.
Catherine & James Kinglake bought the 29 hectare Domaine Begude in 2003. They identified the region of Limoux as an exciting cool climate area in South of France and have approx 60% Chardonnay , 20% Pinot Noir and 20% “aromatics” of Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Gewurztraminer & Gruner Veltliner. James and winemaker, Laurent Girault, with help from Aussie consultant Ricgard Osborne, which are enjoyed around the world.
“The best of these (Limoux) wines represent some of the finest wine value available anywhere. It must be so frustrating for a producer such as James Kinglake of Begude, for instance, who knows that he makes truly fine Chardonnay and Pinot Noir yet sees it selling for a fraction of the price of some extremely ordinary burgundies”. Jancis Robinson, MW July 2016
