Tasting Notes

    Light lemon colour. Striking and floral, hints of jasmin, peoney and kumquat. A gracious style balancing richness of fruit, with a good citrus vibrance. Beautifully clean and very refreshing on the finish.

    One would ordinarily pair a sweet pie with sweet wine, but none have sufficiently dominant lime flavours, so I have found a bone dry white with a piercingly fresh lime theme. Silky on the palate and invigoratingly citrusy on the finish, this is one of the finest value chardonnays in the UK today.

    As sure as night follows day, the new vintage of Begude’s inexpensive Chardonnay arrives in the UK, I am fortunate to see a preview sample, and it is an inevitable beauty. I have followed Begude since the very first moment that James and Catherine Kinglake bought the property, and they have never put a foot wrong. 2021 Le Haut du Puits shows uncommon sophistication with its aromatherapeutic nose, silky-smooth texture, relaxing aura and pin-sharp finish. It is the vinous equivalent of a cleansing sauna followed by indulgent massage and an electrifying leap into an ice-cold plunge pool. You cannot fail to feel like you have given your palate a stunning sensory makeover after just one glass. Drink now - 2023

Domaine Begude

Domaine Bégude was purchased by English couple James and Catherine Kinglake in 2003. The estate lies high in the beautiful foothills of the Pyrenees in the South of France, near Limoux, a village best known for its sparkling wine, Blanquette de Limoux and terrific Chardonnays. The key to Bégude’s excellent balance and freshness is the altitude of the vineyards – a staggering 350 metres above sea level – which ensures a long cool growing season. This fact, coupled with tiny yields, organically certified farming and biodynamic techniques, resulted in grapes of the highest quality.
