Tucked away down in south-west France, Gascony is a haven for deliciously fresh whites of tremendous value. And this gem is from our friends at Domaine de Ménard. Ripe apple, fresh melon with bracing citrus. Pure refreshment - like summer in a glass.
Gascony is a fabulous region for vibrant whites packed with crisp, citrusy fruits. As Jamie Goode points out in the Sunday Express, Gascony 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”. Cuvée Marine is the top white from Jean François, over at Domaine de Ménard in the heart of Gascony. It’s named for the marine fossils that make up the vineyard’s soils, lending whites a mineral tang that takes freshness up a level. For this white, she carefully selects the ripest citrusy Colombard, and blends with Ugni Blanc for extra crispness and Gros Manseng for spiced stone fruit. Perfect with seafood.
