|EAN:||Toques et Clochers Limoux Chardonnay Autan|
Complex rich chardonnay with the smell of toast and ripe yellow fruit. The taste is powerful and elegant. Delicious with many starters with fish but also delicious with refined pâté.
The wine growers in the southern French region of Limoux organize every year a gastronomic feast where the proceeds of the wine sales benefit the restoration of the church of the organizing village. A top chef who has been awarded three Michelin stars holds the scepter. This event called Toques et Clochers is now a phenomenon in culinary circles.
Within the region, the wines from the different terroirs are bottled separately. The vineyards of the terroir Autan are located on the hills around the town of Limoux in the heart of the wine region. Here the climate is the warmest and driest of the environment. This makes this wine the first of the four terroirs to drink. After harvesting follows, as with many large white wines, the fermentation and aging on small oak casks.
