The Vignobles Montagnac are located in the Hérault, 15 kilometers from Montpellier, on the edge of the Mediterranean. 750 growers cultivate and vinify 2220 hestares on two sites : Montagnac and Loupian. Annual production is 150,000 hectoliters (1,9 million cases).
Historically, it is the largest unit of production in the region. The quality of the wines comes from the diversity of the soils which stretch from the Thau lake to the valley of the Hérault.
The whole is dominated by the atmosphere of a Mediterranean climate, which is ver y well suited to vine cultivation.
The geological layers alternate between ancient alluvial matter, soils of volcanic origin, molasses and chalky marl with red nodules which are speciﬁc to the terroir.
Grown on sunny slopes it has fruity notes, is mouth ﬁlling, fresh and complex.This is the perfect expression of a Mediterranean Chardonnay, with its fruit drawn from
ver y ripe grapes, whilst retaining freshness and live lines. Not at all heavy, this Chardonnay from the south has an elegant balance which makes it very palatable.
