On the doorstep of the village of Castelnau de Guers, a few kilometers away from Pézenas and the Mediterranean Sea, the Domaine de Castelnau has very ancient origins. Owned by the Lords of Guers as early as the 13th century, Béatrice and Christophe Muret have lovingly been tending to their precious legacy since 1997, thus carrying on their wine-grower forefathers’ vocation.
100% Chardonnay fermented in stainless steel tanks with a short amount of time spent resting on its lees.
Nose of peach, citrus fruit with hints of exotic fruits and vanilla toastiness. The palate is round, with a fairly fine, very pleasant texture, the balance is perfect with just the right amount of freshness and some subtle spice. The expression is quite rich but without excess.
Very nice wine, easy to pair, especially with grilled white fish, trout with almonds or tempura or a herby chunky vegetable stew
