Domaine Calmel & Joseph - Villa Blanche Chardonnay 2015
Domaine Calmel & Joseph - Villa Blanche Chardonnay 2015 (85 tsomw points)
Calmel & Joseph, founded in 1995, is a négociant that only works with independent wine domains in the Languedoc Roussillon. Convinced of the extraordinary potential of this region, oenologist Laurent Calmel and Jerome Joseph assemble all wines with the common desire to prove that too little is known about the unique quality of these Mediterranean soils. Besides the desire to produce wines of consistently high quality, they are very committed to making wine on the basis of their philosophy of elegance, character and flavor.
This chardonnay took the fifth place at the Chardonnay du Monde Festival of very best Chardonnay wines. And that while among the more than 900 competitors there were very expensive Burgundy wines and this fantastic wine costs less than a decade!
Ok. Let’s taste!
In the glass a bright yellow color with green reflections.
On the nose aromas of peach, fennel, flowers on a mineral and light buttery background
On the palate dry, medium-bodied with medium acidity. A smooth crowd pleaser with flavours of peach, citrus, butter and some bitterness. The finish is a bit short with white pepper.
