Chardonnay ‘Arcturus’, Domaine Begude

£37.99

The love and respect this domaine has for quality Burgundy shines very brightly here. There’s more than a hint of Côte-d’Or about this superb Chardonnay, but it’s the purity of fruit that is so captivating alongside the considerable level of complexity on show. Delicious now but if you can resist it there’s potentially more to come with a little age.

Domaine Begude

English couple Catherine & James Kinglake bought the 29 hectare Domaine Begude in 2003. They identified the region of Limoux as an exciting cool climate area in South of France and have approx 60% Chardonnay , 20% Pinot Noir and 20% “aromatics” of Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Gewurztraminer & Gruner Veltliner. The stellar Franco-Australian wine making team produces elegant fruit-driven wines which are enjoyed around the world.

“The best of these (Limoux) wines represent some of the finest wine value available anywhere. It must be so frustrating for a producer such as James Kinglake of Begude, for instance, who knows that he makes truly fine Chardonnay and Pinot Noir yet sees it selling for a fraction of the price of some extremely ordinary burgundies”. Jancis Robinson, MW July 2016
