Great new French Chardonnay

Great Value from France!
2022 Richemar French Chardonnay...$12.99

In the heart of the Languedoc, bordering the Thau Basin and the Mediterranean Sea, Les Caves Richemer started in 1937.  Mediterranean Chardonnays receive a lot of sun exposure allow them to fully ripen and express roundness making for a smooth texture. Very fruity on the nose, this is an easy every occasion wine that is bottled early in the year to preserve its freshness.  This wine’s flavors of pear and stone fruit pair well with chicken with olives, Bayonne ham and pâtés as well as with mild, creamy cheeses like Brie.
Early morning picking and cold temperature fermentation to preserve freshness. The lees are stirred post-fermentation to add volume to the wine and balance the fruit.
