Tucked away in southwest France, Gascony is a haven for deliciously fresh whites of tremendous value. This gem is from our friends at Domaine de Ménard. Ripe apple, fresh melon with bracing citrus. Pure refreshment all year - like summer in a glass.
Very refreshing notes of lemon, grapefruit, melon, with zesty length
Citrus notes with ripe stone fruit, grassy and a touch of mango
As Jamie Goode points out in the Sunday Express, Gascony in southwest France is “a brilliant source of inexpensive, fresh, bright, fruity wines. If you like New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, this is an alternative with the same sort of flavour profile, but for much less money”. Take Cuvée Marine – the top white from Elizabeth François at Domaine de Ménard in the heart of Gascony. It’s named after the marine fossils that make up the vineyard’s soils, lending its white wines a mineral tang that takes freshness up a level. For this white, she carefully selects the ripest lemony Colombard, and blends with native Ugni Blanc for crispness and Gros Manseng for spiced stone fruit. It makes a terrific glass on its own or with seafood or tasty salads.
