GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Chardonnay.
BOUQUET
There's a real harmony of flavours on the palate, full, fresh and with a perfect acidity. The fruit is bright and up-front and well-integrated with the wood from the ageing in barrels, making this a round and characterful wine.
PALATE
Intense fruit aromas of ripe apricots, pineapples and lime, delicately complemented with elegant floral notes. The hints of vanilla from the barrel ageing round off an interesting and complex flavour.
VITICULTURE

Founded on a principle of limited production, Albret wines are released on the market only at their best drinking moment.

The works in the cellar, the team, and the noble grape varieties, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Garnacha and Chardonnay, are all under the winemaker’s tight supervision.
