Louis Changarnier Chardonnay

Review by Eric Tansey, CSW                                                                                                                           This wine is light, pale straw in color with a very terroir-driven nose. Aromas of green apple, lime zest, and limestone. On the palate the wine has a medium body mouthful that is elegant almost perfectly balanced. Green apple, and lime zest that is crisp and refreshing with a little sunkist raisin on the finish that adds a touch of complexity. Medium acidity brings great structure and balance to the wine, making this a great choice for food pairing. See how this wine did in Ep. 1 of the Tansey Reviews Vlog, “Chardonnay Blind Tasting.”

What is the Pays d’Oc ? 

The Pays d’Oc is locate in the southern region of the larger Languedoc-Roussillon (pronounced Lang-dock – Rue-see-own) region. This region is considered the true South of France. The region is probably the most historically enriched place in all of Europe. This wine region was influenced by the Greeks in 600 BC, the Celts in 400 BC, the Romans in 60 BC, and on and on until now. Located southeast of Rhone and Provence, this region produces more wine than any other region in France.  There are many great bangs for the buck coming from this region. So if you see Languedoc-Roussillon on the bottle, it’s probably worth every penny. The climate is mediterannian with Chalk, limestone and gravel-y soils perfect for crisp and refreshing white wines. Cheers! Eric Tansey, CSW, Somm1
