Range Villa Blanche
See all wines

A pale, gleaming wine with golden reflections. The nose is well balanced, with powerful aromas of acacia flowers, vine peach and aniseed so characteristic of our Villa Blanche Chardonnay, followed up by elegant notes of vanilla, coconut milk and gingerbread. Blending proved complicated this year, and required great precision to obtain the particular profile that has made this wine such a success. But the result is a pure, incisive, mouth-filling wine with a sumptuous finish of great persistence. This vintage has given us notes of broom flowers, mint, and juniper, but also exotic fruit such as mango and grapefruit, with rich buttery notes, grilled almonds, and honey on the finish. Superbly balanced, perhaps less opulent than last year, but with enormous character and elegance.

Technical sheet


IGP Pays d'Oc




100% Chardonnay


13,5 % al./vol


Volcanic, and limestone clay. The climate, warm and sunny with sporadic rainfall, is typically Mediterranean. Winters are mild and summers are hot with long dry periods that allow the grapes to attain perfect maturity.


The grapes are picked at night, in two harvests. The first is early to ensure freshness, and the second 15 days later to obtain superb concentration and varietal aromas. The grapes are totally destemmed then macerated for 4 hours at 5°C. Fermentation takes place at 15°C. There is no malolactic fermentation.

  • Article The Buyer - Villa Blanche Chardonnay 2022Our Villa Blanche oaked Chardonnay is in the spotlight this month ✨ thanks to wine writer Carcassonne and wine - Dominic Rippon, who included it in his line up of 11 oaked IGP Pays d'Oc Chardonnays that are great value for money 🍷, published in UK on-trade magazine The Buyer. He writes: “this Chardonnay is perfectly judged, with only 30% aged in oak for 3 months, giving it an exuberant fresh fruit character. With a dazzling golden-green colour, the nose is pure and open, with peach, pear and coconut aromas, and a dash of exotic spice. A generous mouth-feel with juicy peach, apple and a hint of almond, driven by a lively thread of acidity. An inspired choice for seafood risotto.” Wine lovers and wine buyers can find this wine in the UK (RRP £10) by contacting our importer Daniel Lambert Wines Ltd.
