A product range which is ideal for time spent relaxing on a terrace or at the beach.

ORIGIN

IGP Côtes de Gascogne is an oceanic terroir which offers the ideal balance between sunshine, rainfall and cool conditions, resulting in complex yet fruity wines.

VINIFICATION

Particular care goes into the state of health of the Sauvignon grapes and into their transport to the winery; it is essential to avoid any oxidation during this pre-fermentary phase in which the aromas first emerge. The modern vinification methods used include maceration on the skins for around 10 hours at 12°C in order to strengthen the aromatic potential and flesh of the wine. After the pneumatic pressing, the must is left to settle in stainless steel vats (48hrs) before the alcoholic fermentation is carried out under temperature control (16 to 19°C). The wine is then kept on the fine lees until filtration prior to bottling.

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: brilliant pale yellow colour with almond tints. 

Bouquet: very intense and characteristic of the Sauvignon; it combines exotic aromas of mango and pineapple with fresh scents of lemon and grapefruit, along with subtle notes of white flowers.

Palate: fresh and aromatic, marked by flavours of citrus fruit and white peach, easy to drink

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Open now and serve at 8-10°C. Lively and lemony, it will obviously go well with fresh fish, shellfish and seafood. Its lightness and intense aromas also make it ideal
