La Grande Nuit, Chardonnay, Pays d’Oc, France 2013

Rating: 16.5/20pts
Although the fruit in this complex, attractive wine is grown close to the Mediterranean coast, daytime temperatures can still hit significant levels. As a result the grapes are harvested at night, hence the wine’s name. It’s leesy but fresh, with a soft feel to the palate which has green apple notes and a herbal edge.
