Villa Noria ‘Les Colombiers’ Chardonnay 0.0%

13.00

Description

Fully organic, vegan and alcohol-free sparkling Chardonnay.

Firstly, it’s notable that this isn’t de-alcoholised wine, rather pure carbonated natural white grape juice, and we think all the better for it. As in the vineyard this is minimal intervention, and both grapes and juice get the same care and attention in the winery as Villa Noria’s best wines. As with the wines, organic Chardonnay grapes are harvested at night to preserve freshness and gently pressed, prior to carbonation and bottling.

We also think it tastes fantastic. Pale gold-yellow in colour, the bubbles add extra lift to aromas of pear, apple, freshly baked bread and warm honey. Fresh and lively on the palate, those autumn fruits to the fore with a lovely savoury complexity, finishing with tangy apple and hints of candied citrus and honey.

Preservative- and sulphite-free, and low in sugar.

Producer: Villa Noria

Founded in 2010, Villa Noria is only a young slip of a thing but as wholesomely ethical, energetic, enthusiastic and innovative as any producer we've come across. It's the vision realised of Cédric Arnaud and Fabien Gross, both acquiring their interest in winemaking from their grandparents and coming together with different but complementing skill-sets, to establish the winery and five areas of vineyards with distinctive and differing terroirs..

Every vineyard is under organic cultivation and adheres to France's high environmental value (HVE) standards, planting disease resistant varieties, promoting biodiversity, protecting water resources and conserving the landscape. The vines, nestled between the Mediterranean Sea and the foothills of the Larzac plateau give elegant wines from the noble grape varieties including Picpoul, Sauvignon Blanc, Clairette, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay. There's experimentation with natural winemaking and orange wines, and innovation with developing non-alcoholic grape-based drinks that you'd actually choose to drink. We can't wait to see what comes next.
