La Noble Chardonnay
This wine shows surprising concentration and intensity of aromas on the bouquet. Classic green apple with a hint of citrus fruit topped off by a creamy note blend together in this wine that’s exceptionally well-balanced, pure and focused.
$14.00 / Bottle $168.00 / Case
A wine that overdelivers and is priced under $10! We wouldn’t hesitate to put this wine up against a lot of more expensive Chardonnay from more prestigious regions. This little Vin de Pays gives you a lot of wine for your money!
The neatly tended vineyards of la Noble, thanks to Yves’ hard work outside instead of inside talking to journalists!
La Noble shows you what great teamwork can create. Yves Delmas of Domaine la Noble and Dan Kravitz, self-proclaimed "Chief Onological Orator", combined their talents to produce a line of varietal wines of excellence and character that offer the wine lover more than a pretty label or standard quality.
Yves is a reserved guy, a farmer to the core who is more interested in spending time in his vineyards than getting his picture taken.
Dan is an outgoing American who’s passionate about wine. "I am convinced that America will be a better and happier place as we begin to incorporate wine into our daily lives." Dan excitedly tells anyone within earshot. He’s made it his life goal to provide consumers with wines that are both moderately priced and full of flavor and character.
The south of France is covered in vineyards, and it’s only fair to say that some spots are better than others for growing Chardonnay. It gets awfully hot in this Mediterranean climate, and this heat can bake the freshness and acidity out of white grapes. If care isn’t taken to select the cooler locations for grapes like Chardonnay you’ll end up with unbalanced, fat, dull wines.
The grapes used to make La Noble Chardonnay come from high cool vineyards around Limoux. This area is famous for its sparkling wines which comes as no surprise when you compare the climate with the notoriously cool climate of its more famous cousin Champagne.
Situated rather farther inland and up in a not-quite mountainous zone, Limoux is ideal for producing crisp dry wines noted for their purity and intensity of flavor.
This wine does justice to its name and carries itself with class. Don’t be afraid to place this wine on the table at an elegant dinner party, or open a bottle when you’re sitting down with a salad or fried chicken!
