95% Chardonnay

The Mouscaillo Limoux blanc comes from high altitude vines above Roquetaillade in the Languedoc. The wine is phenomenally delicious expression of Chardonnay from an unexpected area. The vision for this wine came from Pierre Fort, who left the region to learn winemaking in the Loire Valley. Mentored by his friend, the legendary producer Didier Dagueneau, Pierre returned with a no holds barred approach to craft exceptional wines from his hometown. Today the domaine is run by the next generation: Thomas and Camille Fort.
