Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Pale, bright gold in colour with enticing aromas of vanilla, lime blossom, lemon curd and pear. The palate is harmonious, with a creamy mouthfeel. This gorgeous Chardonnay ends with a clean, bracing acidity, carrying the flavours to a lingering finish.
Produced by the highly acclaimed LGI wines, awarded Best French Still Wine Producer at Berliner Wein Trophy in 2017, 2018 and 2019! Originally the brainchild of Alain Grignon, who had a vision of making affordable, classic French wines designed specifically for the international market. Now under the supervision of oenologist Xavier Roger.
The Combe Rocher (literally ‘rocky valley’) range is one of pure authenticity crafted from carefully selected terroirs, situated on high altitude slopes, with rocky soils. The terroir effect is very noticeable in this region due to the great variety of winegrowing microclimates that create an expression of the grape varieties that is unique. This specific Chardonnay is sourced from lowland vineyards from the Pays d’Oc, planted on calcareous marls."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2019 Vintage)
"Gorgeously styled and finely expressed, the wine shows nectarine, lemon peel, nougat and roasted cashew characters on the nose with a hint of oatmeal complexity. It’s refined and wonderfully weighted on the palate delivering creamy mouthfeel backed by bright acidity, leading to a persistent elegant finish. At its best: now to 2024."
