“11300 refers to our postcode and this wine is the best expression of the Terroir around Limoux: a blend of stainless steel fermented and barrel fermented Chardonnay.” - Domaine Begude.
29 hectare, family-owned Estate, located in the foothills of the Pyrénées in the Limoux region of the South of France. Award winning, organically framed vineyard for the past 30 years. The vineyards are gently rolling and all around the house and never more than 5 minutes from the press & winery, thus ensuring no oxidation of grapes at harvest time and maintaining great freshness of fruit. Purity of flavours are the key from this unique cool climate site.

"This wine comes from the French postcode 11300, in Limoux, where Brits James and Catherine Kinglake make stunningly alluring wines. With the merest hint of oak augmenting the beautiful fruit this elegant chardonnay is a compelling elixir with true class and restraint. It’s also a dream with the Tomato, mozzarella and basil mini pizzas."
