Toques et Clochers, Limoux AOC, 2018, Languedoc-Roussillon, France


A wonderful Limoux Chardonnay wine from near the city of Carcassonne. Golden in colour with vanilla, dried fruits, pear, and honeysuckle aromas. A supple and rich white wine with good citrus flavours and minerality to keep the balance.

Perfect with lobster, scallops, chicken or creamy dishes.

The 'Toques et Clochers' Limoux Chardonnay was first introduced in 1989 and is a co-operative wine. It takes its name from the gala dinner held every year and cooked by a celebrity chef (hence the chef's hat 'toque') whilst the wine is auctioned and the proceeds used to maintain the church bells of a different wine village every year (hence the 'clochers')
