The wines that were created for baguettes.

One of the great engines that has driven this move into the present for Pays d’Oc has been their ability to adopt some of the most important varieties as their own. Chardonnay for example, the world’s premier white grape, is well represented in the Pays d’Oc.
With wines across the style spectrum, the Chardonnays of Pays d’Oc can satisfy most any palate. Take the Vignerons d'Alignan du Vent Cinquante Cinq Chardonnay 2017 ($10). It is a fresh, bright example from France’s largest family run co-opnow in its fourth generation.
Premium price options are available, too. Take the Gérard Bertrand Cigalus Chardonnay 2016 ($45). It is a benchmark example for the Pays d'Oc, reflecting Gerard Bertrand’s ambition and confidence in the region. This Chardonnay competes with the world’s finest, spiced with a touch of Viognier and the freshness of Sauvignon Blanc barrel aged in French barrique.
