Vendome has one of the longest and most amazing histories in Paarl. It has been in the same family, the Le Roux family, for 10 generations - since 1692. The first two Le Roux brothers, Jean and Gabriel, who originated from the Mêr/Vendôme/Blois area, next to the Loire River in France, came to South Africa in 1688 as French Huguenots. Vineyards have been established on both sides of the Bergriver in Paarl for the same amount of time.
This Vendome Chardonnay is very light in colour and a fresh, fruity wine. Not your typical Chardonnay.
