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, or as a summer picnic white, this is great with cold meats and cheeses too.
