Sommelier Notes: Do you prefer the fruity flavors of Chardonnay? This un-oaked Chardonnay is your thing! Tropical fruits like banana, pineapple in the nose and a gentle, fresh finish on the pallet. Le Galant is the classic gentleman. Reserved… yet direct. Accommodating in his structure and charming with his aromas of bread, nuts and figs, this Chardonnay presents himself as a perfect companion for the pleasant moments in life. With courteous gesture, he will flatter your palate and delight you.
The unique Malepère appellation sits in the foothills of the Pyrenees, so it is one of the coolest winegrowing areas in the whole of the Languedoc-Roussillon. The “cool weather” grapes thrive here, at the same time there is also enough South of France sun for the grapes to fully ripen and develop their best qualities. This is special terroir, which is why the famous Kohler family of designer bathroom hardware bought this fine domaine. The winemaker is Jem Harris, a transplant from Australia, who is a very fine winemaker.
