French Dog Colombard & Chardonnay

ORIGIN :

Protected Geographical Indication - Côtes de Gascogne


TYPE OF SOIL :

Clay and limestone


GRAPE VARIETIES :

Colombard & Chardonnay


WINEMAKING TECHNIQUES :

The grapes are pressed using a pneumatic press. The musts of the resultant juice are left to settle under cold conditions (8°C). Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature controlled vats (18°C), started off by the addition of yeasts which are specially selected for their ability to bring out the aromas of the chardonnay and colombard grapes.


TASTING NOTES :

Visual : A crystalline, very pale yellow colour.

Nose : Intense and fairly complex, first expressing citrus notes  (lime, lemon) and a delicate mineral hint . Swirling then reveals white fruits aromas.

Palate : Lively in the attack, great balance. The palate expresses  lemon and a subtle hint of green mango.


SERVING SUGGESTION :

This wine makes an ideal aperitif and is the perfect partner to fish cooked in a sauce. Best served at a temperature of 9°C.
