Grape Variety: Chardonnay
Producer: Cognettes (Stéphane & Vincent Perraud)
Region: Clisson, Loire, France
Wild Scale: 2/5
Winemaking: Organic grapes were harvested by hand and fermented with indigenous yeast before ageing in concrete tank. No fining, lightly filtered and a small amount of sulphur on bottling.
This Wine: Still white wine that is great value for an everyday drinking, organic Chardonnay. No use of oak so you get a nice purity of fruit with citrus and apple flavours. Easy drinking and doesn't necessarily need a food accompaniment.
Notes on the Winemaker: Stéphane & Vincent Perraud are 7th generation farmers in the Loire valley. They farm 25 hectares near the village of Clisson and make great value, everyday drinking wines from certified organic fruit.
