Tasting note l'Arjolle Equinoxe Chardonnay
Beautiful, aromatic dry white wine with nuances of toast, ripe apple, mango and some oak. The palate starts soft, mild and round and has a lingering aftertaste.
The way of making wine is constantly changing. We see style changes as soon as, for example, a young generation takes over the family domain. As happened with our favorite southern French producer Domaine de l'Arjolle. The previous generation, Louis-Marie Teisserenc, liked sleek wines with freshness. These usually tasted excellent at the table but were less accessible outside. His son François lets the grapes ripen a little longer and pays more attention to roundness in the wine. This makes the taste more in line with the way of drinking wine outside the meal. The Chardonnay Equinoxe represents the new Arjolle style. This wine is made from the first and best part of the very soft pressing (less than 0.2 bar pressure) and yeast in oak casks, so that the wood influence is clearly present. After two months of barrelage, the wine matures for a total of ten months on the 'lie' in the same barrels. The result is a very nice, dry Chardonnay with nuances of toast, ripe apple, mango and some oak. The seductive, luxurious and mild taste makes the wine ideal for drinking just like that, or to combine it with beautiful dishes such as scallops St Jacques, turbot or poultry. Richer than white Burgundy, but not as bulky as many New World Chardonnays.
