Badet Clement Pontificis Chardonnay Viognier

60% Chardonnay 40% Viognier.
This wine has a nice golden colour with green tints. It offers praline and buttery notes, crys- tallized lemon and orange peel aromas in a very long and round palate. First nose is very aromatic, thanks to the Viognier which brings dried apricot, banana and pear notes. Then, come the subtle floral notes (white flowers, acacia) from the Chardonnay with citrus hints, pineapple and a slight touch of oak. The round attack on the palate is followed by a long persistent fresh finish with fruity notes.

Both grapes are sourced in the South of the Languedoc-Roussillon from an area between Beziers and Carcassonne. Dry, rather cool climate in summer. Viognier grapes are grown on limestone soils with pebbles, Chardonnay grapes are grown on stony limestone soils.

Hand harvested, both grape varieties are gently pressed and vinified independently. The fermentation is made in stainless steel vats at low temperature to keep as much fruit as possible. Aged on the lies till the end of winter before being racked in vats. We then blend the two wines.

Food Pairing Ideas
This wine is aromatic, easy to drink as an aperitif and with Mediterranean cuisine, salads, snacks and pizzas. It also matches with seafood, as scallops, lobster or monkfish. Serve at 12°C. Cross-check complete, you’re free to move about the cabin…

This wine has a very deep purple color with blackcurrant and red fruits aromas, hints of flowers and spices. The dark fruit flavors are enhaced by satin-smooth tannins. Produced in the Languedoc-Roussillon, between sea and mountain, from the three local grape varieties.

Your Wine InFlight Movie

Description

What is a Wine Flight?

A wine flight starts with tasting one to six wines over time in a progressive order based on varietals,  vintages or regions.

A glass or tasting portion is poured of each wine in succession over a period of time (during a party or dinner) so each wine is progressively tasted.

The aim is to accumulate an appreciation of the wines and have each wine complement each other. White wines (think Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc) are often consumer during an appetizer or starter followed by Red wines during a main course (think Pinot Noir or Shiraz).

Wine Flights are a fun and educational way to enjoy wine and inspires conversations about each wine. You may decided on a wine flight focused on vintages from  say 2010 to 2020 or Chardonnay from the Hunter Valley. Other wine flights commence with a white and move onto a red, others will progress through various white wines into heavier red wines (for example, Pinot Noir to Cabernet Sauvignont to Durifs).

Like flying around the world, there’s many different ways to reach your destination and getting their is an often the best part of the adventure.
