Martin and Mathieu Béraut run Domaine de Pellehaut along strict environmentally-friendly guidelines. So much so, in fact, this bottle sports the new French government Haute Valeur Environnementale badge on its back label ('High Environmental Value').

Luckily for you, looking after the wildlife in their vineyards also seems to be paying dividends with the wines too. We'd warrant if you tasted this French Chardonnay blind you'd more likely put it over in Burgundy rather than Gascony.

There's that luscious hint of buttery vanilla, that silky mouthfeel, and a long finish that's normally found in far grander bottles. One of our top recommendations if fantastic Chardonnay wines are your thing, but you wished they didn't cost so much.

The Producer

Domaine de Pellehaut is a family-owned property and chateau with 250 hectares of vines grown on slopes of up to 180m in altitude. The proximity to the Pyrenees provide a welcome shelter from bad weather, with very low rainfall and warm, sunny summers. Brothers Martin and Mathieu Beraut produce wines from both local and well-known grape varieties, including our very own Rude Reserve Blanc, a blend of Colombard and Chardonnay, with a smattering of Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Manseng and Ugni Blanc

The Winemaker

The estate operates a ‘lutte raisonnée’ approach to viticulture, preferring the use of organic fertilisers produced on the estate and minimal or no use of pesticides. Grapes are harvested during the cool of the night to preserve the aromatic qualities of these fresh wines and modern techniques used in the winery with an eye to keeping the character of the grape and local character.

The Region

The beautiful Gers region may be one of France’s lesser-known tourist hotspots but then, off-the-beaten-track finds are often the best. Sitting in the heart of the south-west corner of France, this rural landscape, with the stunning backdrop of the Pyrenees, is home to the Cotes de Gascogne, now France’s largest white wine producing area.
