is a rich, full-flavored blend that exhibits the bright,
fruit-driven Monterey wine style. The wine has
aromas of smoke, chocolate and cassis and flavors of
blackberry and plum, with a hint of tobacco and toasty
oak. A long, lingering and complex finish makes for a
very satisfying red wine that is the perfect complement
to a variety of medium- to full-flavored foods.

La Noble Chardonnay
de Pays d’Oc
Saint Felix de Lodez – Languedoc, France
Languedoc-Roussillon region is probably the first area
in France where the Romans introduced viticulture.
Languedoc-Roussillon actually comprises two regions:
the Languedoc, which stretches westward from the bottom
of the Rhone down to the Pyrenees hugging the Mediterranean
coast, and Roussillon, which curves southward from
north of Perpignan to the Spanish border. Combined,
this region covers over 400,000 acres of vines and
produces close to 18 million hectoliters of wine a
This is a 100% Chardonnay grown in the
coolest hillside vineyards of the Languedoc, made with
no aging in oak
to maintain purity of fruit and bottled young for maximum
freshness. Unsullied by oak or butter flavors, it is
a throwback to the uncomplicated pleasure people took
in wine centuries ago.
La Noble Chardonnay is a wonderful aperitif;
a light, zingy way to whet the appetite. It is an excellent
to a wide range of foods, from most anything on the grill
on a warm, sunny February day to shrimp on the barbie
to fried chicken to an elegant dinner of scallops or
lobster. Drink cool, not cold, to enjoy all of the flavors
and aromas. Best to drink this wine in the next two years.
