In the city of Nice (South of France) there is a mythic and historic wine bar named “La Part des Anges”, there you can drink the best of natural wines at ridiculously low price.
There I had the chance to drink one of the last bottles of “Kharaktêr” 2010 from Christian Chaussard, unfortunately a rarity since the Christian passed away in 2012…
It’s a wonderful ripe Chenin blanc, on pear, quince, gooseberries notes, straight and mineral, with a perfect balance and a long finale. Truly natural but without caricature. A very gastronomic wine ! That paired really well with a few sardines and delicious bread with a thick layer of butter !
It’s always emotional to drink one of the last bottles made by Christian Chaussard… Really happy to have been able to enjoy it !
