Chateau d'Antugnac 'La Closerie des Lys Chardonnay, France
Readers rated this wine:
Delicate, fresh, crisp.
In 1997, school friends the Collovrays and the Terriers began a new adventure by purchasing Chateau d'Antugnac in the Haute Valleee de l'Aude, in the Pyrenees; one of the Languedoc's best regions. Here the terroir makes for fresh wines, while the expertise of the fourth-generation winemakers ensures elegance and finesse.
It comes from 15-year-old vines grown on high elevation clay-limestone soils.
A shy nose of golden fruit and honey, citrus and mineral result in a similarly delicate palate of crisp tree fruits, mineral and citrus. It's primarily fresh, but has a creamy edge and lemony finish. A straightforward but fine everyday white for fish, white meats, creamy sauces.
