The Delatour Chardonnay is classified as a Vin de Pays d’Oc (pronounced as van-do-pay doc) This form of French wine classification allows individual winemakers to identify their wines with larger grape growing appellations within France. This form of classification is also subject to testing, analysis, evaluation and approval by an INAO tasting committee (a branch of the French Ministry of Agriculture.) All wines identified as Vin de Pays d’Oc are specifically sourced from the Languedoc-Roussillon area in Mediterranean France and tend to offer excellent quality wines for everyday consumption.

On the palate, the flavor profile exudes even richer characteristics of dried yellow apples, fresh ripe pears and an additional note of honeydew melon with a twist of lemon zest. This wine is certainly enjoyable on its own and suits almost any occasion, but it also serves as a perfect companion for picnics and light appetizers.  Unfortunately, there are only forty cases of this wine still available….if you are planning on an exciting and fun-filled summer this year, you may want to consider purchasing a case of this wine before everyone else does!
