Area of production : IGP Côtes de Gascogne
Soil and climate : The vineyards are located in the Gers on two types of soils : Limestone/Clay and Silica/Clay. The climate is semi-continental
Grape varieties : Colombard & Ugni blanc
Climate conditions : Early bud burst announced a precocious vintage last spring. Excellent weather conditions were favourable to flowering, suggesting a good upcoming harvest. June and July were wet, with an important number of rainy days rather than high pluviometry. Summer finally began in the first days of August and lasted until the end of October, allowing optimum ripeness.
After a very tense early summer, grapes were finally picked with a smile, in a relaxed working atmosphere. The wines issue from this harvest show high density, crispy freshness and great finesse. A great vintage for sure.
Type of winemaking : Skin maceration for 24 hours. Slow pressing by pneumatic pressure. Cold settling for 48 hours. Slow fermentation, followed by ageing on lees.
Tasting notes : The color is bright, golden with greenish tints
The nose is straightforward, slightly spicy and delicate.
Crunchy and aromatic on the palate
Food recommandation : This wine can be enjoyed by itself as an aperitif. It perfectly pairs with seafood, fish and cheese.
