'Le Jardin' Chardonnay

Domaine de Cibadiès | France

Le Jardin' Chardonnay | Wine Club by Majestic

What white grape is more traditional or versatile than Chardonnay? This example, however, comes from a somewhat unexpected region – the Languedoc. With a brilliant straw-yellow hue, it’s aromatically intense and complex, featuring bursts of citrus, peach, dried fruit and vanilla. Watch out, Burgundy.


About the producer
When Jean-Michel Bonfils acquired Domaine de Cibadiès in the 1960s, he took a punt planting Chardonnay and Pinot Noir – even though both varieties were almost unknown in the Languedoc at the time. The gamble obviously paid off. He now owns 16 estates across the region, plus another in Bordeaux, and was awarded Best Producer in France by Mundus Vini in both 2022 and 2023.


About the region
If it’s history you want, Pays d’Oc has the goods: this is France’s oldest vineyard area, founded in the sixth century by the Greeks. The vineyards of Domaine de Cibadiès are located on terraces and hillsides overlooking Unesco World Heritage Site, the Canal du Midi. Grapes for this wine come from a single plot, fittingly named ‘Le Jardin’.

Food Pairing
Enjoy this wine with Smoked Mackerel Pâté with Cornichons and Olive Oil Snap-BreadsThis pairing is a marriage of body and textures: a rich and rounded wine alongside the rich and creamy pâté. Citrusy notes tie it all together beautifully.
