Drink now through to 2022. Serve chilled.

The “Toques et Clochers” series from Sieur d’Arques literally translates as “Chefs’ Hats and Bell Towers”, and takes its name from a famous annual charity auction and major wine event which raises money to preserve the Limoux region’s historic churches. These wines are designed to showcase the region’s four distinctive terroirs and to emphasise their remarkable gastronomic potential.

The Chardonnay Oceanique is made with grapes from the Sieur d’Arques cooperative’s cooler vineyard sites which sit on gravelly soils at 300 metres of altitude and enjoy breezes from the nearby Mediterranean Sea. After harvesting the grapes at optimal ripeness, the grape must is vinified in oak barrels and aged on the lees for 6 months to add seductive creamy notes and a well-rounded mouthfeel.

On the nose the characteristic green apple, citrus and white peach notes of the Chardonnay come to the fore, followed by delicate hints of toast and salinity. The first sip reveals a velvety smooth mouthfeel complemented by a vibrant acidity and well-developed fruity and honeyed flavours. This delicate balance and finesse makes this wine a great partner for scallops cooked with saffron, creamy chicken dishes or pan-fried fish with roasted Mediterranean vegetables.
