Red Squirrel releases first Limoux Chardonnay

Drinks: Chardonnay, Wines
Location: France

Described by the guys at Red Squirrel as a ‘bit crazy, and more than a bit delicious’, the wine merchant has collaborated with vigneron Bruno Bouché, to create a Limoux Chardonnay.

Originally from Champagne, Bouché is now making wine at his farm in Limoux, having upped sticks and moved south he now makes sparkling wines from Terra Vitis-certified vineyards. Bouché’s family still make champagne.

Être à l’Ouest 2016, Vin de France (translation: away with the fairies), is a unfined and unfiltered Chardonnay, dry and still despite the crown cap, from historic Limoux. The Chardonnay is unoaked, pure and ‘fulsome.’

Interested? You can taste the wine at Red Squirrel’s 2017 portfolio tastings, in London and Bristol this September.
