Chateau Le Chabrier Le Contrepoint Bergerac 2006 is quite a dark yellow in colour, which is quite misleading and not in keeping with the beautifully fragrant subtleness of this wine. It has persistent and long lasting aromas of lemon, vanilla and toasted almonds. The taste isn't overpowering, or heavy, but very slightly earthy (think fern, grassy - one taster said it reminds her of being in a meadow....). Matured for 12-30 months on lees has made this wine slightly creamy, but still fresh and lightly lemony, with a lingering, elegant and long lasting 'tingly' aftertaste.

Cuvee Amelie Chardonnay 2016 from Domaine Cazulet.
The aromas of this un-oaked chardonnay are fresh and fruity. On the palate there is a lovely freshness to it, with a hint of white peach and lemon and good acidity. It is very well balanced with a medium finish. We think this chardonnay is a fabulous wine for the price. If you think you don't like chardonnay, we suggest you try this.
100% Chardonnay wine from the great organic vineyard of Stephane Cazulet. This is a very special chardonnay wine and we personally think that if you don't want to pay the price tag for a Burgundy, this is a great substitute. Aged in oak for 6 months, it has a pleasant nose of tropical fruits. It is rich and slightly buttery with delicious fruit of melon, pineapple and nectarine. We think it is quite special. Great with creamy dishes, salmon, and white richer meats.
The vines are planted on clay and limestone hills at 140 metres altitude, with sandy pebbles and draining rock of fossilised coral.This beautiful 100% Vermentino (or Rolle as it is also known in France), is slightly mineral on the nose with notes of white flower. It is light and refreshing with good acidity, green apple, pear and lemon rind.
