Calmel & Joseph is a sanctuary for vignerons in the Languedoc Roussillon region of France. The domaine farms 200 estate hectares and also acts as a negociant (think broker or middle-man), with contracts to help farm vineyards, buy fruit and make great wines. The farming is pristine, with absolutely no chemicals, pesticides or synthesized fertilizers used. When I first tasted this Chardonnay, I was struck by how much it resembled a really decent Burgundy. It has Macon-like qualities with generous peachy fruit, citrus curd, and zesty acidity. A little time in fine oak barrels has added gorgeous roasted nutty flavours, and creamy succulence. The grapes are picked at night in two phases: early for a big hit of lip-smacking acidity, and then 15 days later for richer, riper fruit. This wine was top ten in the 2017 Best Chardonnay du Monde competition - out of 700 Chardonnays - a truly remarkable feat! Try with truffled popcorn, salmon with herb butter (or Hollandaise sauce, if you feel like a challenge in the kitchen!), or Dungeness crab cakes. This is how you make Chardonnay with a kiss of new French oak really shine.
