Hautes Pistes Chardonnay
Aubert et Mathieu (first names Anthony & Jean-Charles) are two friends from Carcasonne who, after short careers in banking and wine marketing, decided to come together and specialise in premium wines made in collaboration with environmentally conscious estates from across the Languedoc-Roussillon region. Wanting wines of freshness, balance and complexity, they have chosen to work with low intervention growers at some of the highest altitudes. Their belief in sustainability continues throughout their practice, with eco-friendly packaging, carbon neutrality and engagement in supporting local biodiversity, in particular, a reforestation plan and supporting local beekeepers. Pneumatically pressed then fermented over 20 days in stainless steel at 18C using selected yeasts. Transferred to 1 year old 255L oak barrels for full malolactic and 6 months' maturation. Unfined, lightly filtered.
