2017 Barrique Blanc, Domaine de la Jasse, Languedoc
Domaine de la Jasse is rightly famed for the intensity and richness of its red wine cuvées, however, Bruno's delicious 2017 Chardonnay should not be overlooked. Created in the estate's cooler vineyard sites, it is a bold cuvée of Burgundian proportions.
Think Meursault rather than Puligny-Montrachet; the 2017 Barrique Blanc is full of baked apple, white petals, hazelnut and vanilla cream flavours. It reflects a delightfully controlled opulence, the purity and breadth of ripe fruit flavours on show marrying with stunning freshness and a supremely textural palate weight. Where elegance in the warm South is often hard to retain, here it is to be found in abundance. Such precision and balance can only be attained by a thorough understanding of the estate's terroir, and here Bruno Le Breton’s class and experience is undeniable.

Domaine de la Jasse is situated some 15 kilometres from Montpellier in the heart of the Languedoc, the most dynamic wine area of Mediterranean France. Its name comes from the shelter and shade, known in the local dialect as jasse, provided by the Domaine’s iconic Plane tree.
This tree, which is over a century old, has provided the inspiration for the La Jasse trademark and logo. Today La Jasse, one of the leading domaines in the region, is recognised for its innovation and advanced techniques. The area is well known for attracting highly talented winemakers such as Bruno Le Breton, who has won numerous top awards with his La Jasse wines. Like the makers of ‘Super Tuscan’ wines, Bruno has chosen not to follow the restrictions of the appellation regulations, choosing instead the freedom provided under Vin de Pays d’Oc rules. This allows him to fully concentrate on creating ‘Super Cuvées’ of the highest possible quality at exceptionally low prices.
