Coteaux d’Aix en Provence – France
This is a dry, elegant and light-bodied Provençal white wine that is not only a rarity in these latitudes – it tastes both good and (in a lot
un-Provencal style!) this is astonishingly good value-for-money.
The family estate in Rognes, near Aix en Provence, is today managed by the 3rd and 4th generation. Chateau Barbebelle has a wine-friendly terroir with a pleasant climate and a soil consisting of clayey limestone.
The white ‘Cuvée Madeleine’ has been created on the basis of own grapes; 60% role and 20% sauvignon blanc and 20% ugni blanc.
After the harvest at night, the grapes are cooled down and undergo a cool pressing and light maceration before temperature-controlled cold fermentation in stainless steel. Further storage also takes place in steel tanks.
Aroma and taste have a clean and fine fruit with white-floral measures in an aromatic style that is democratically understandable. The sensation of ripe fruit is balanced by a good underlying acidity, which makes this a harmonious and easy-drinking wine.
Château Barbebelle Blanc goes well with fish and shellfish, but it will also be lovely with a pâté, with charcuterie, toasted bread with fresh cheese or a hearty salad.
Served at approx. 8-10°.
