Saint-Hilaire Chardonnay


Crisp and refreshing unoaked Chardonnay

Saint-Hilaire is a historic name long-associated with the Hérault region of Languedoc and especially around Mèze, Montagnac and Pinet.  Saint-Hilaire wines are meticulously selected and blended exclusively from top vineyards in this region that reflect the local terroir and are generally unknown internationally or even outside of our local area.  

Tasting Notes

Mineral notes combine with the delicacy of orange blossom and the juiciness of ripe melons. This wine can be appreciated not only for its structure and elegance, but also its refreshing, crisp acidity and long, mouth-watering finish. Delicious with salads, appetizers and most light dishes and cheeses, but equally refreshing on its own!
