Description
Gascony is one of our favourite parts of France, and not being on the way to anywhere it is a bit of a rural backwater. Excellent food, friendly people, lots of sunshine, and inspiring views of the Pyrenees. Lionel Osmin is a young winemaker who is a magician with the local Colombard grape, and here blends it with Sauvignon Blanc to create a lipsmackingly delicious drop.

 

Tasting Notes

Bursting with joyous fresh apple and guava, and even a hint of passionfruit, this juicy, fresh white is dangerously drinkable. Ideal as an aperitif, this is great with cold meats and cheeses too. Worth having in your fridge at all times.
