Tasting Notes: A stunning house white wine from Plaimont Cooperative. On the nose, you can expect wonderfully fruity and floral notes. When it comes to the palate, you’ll be getting stunning flavours of peach, citrus, green apples and even a hint of almonds! Ultimately, this leads to a delicately crisp wine that is fresh, lively and smooth.
Winemaking Notes: 100% Colombard, 10.5% ABV, from Gascony, France (Vegan)
Food Pairings: This wine is a bit of a crowd pleaser, there’s not much it wouldn’t go well with. But it goes exceptionally well with fish focused dishes and light finger food.
About the Winemaker: “It all began in the mid-1970s when André Dubosc – a third-generation wine grower – set out to build up the reputation of the wines from their region of South-West France. He and other passionate young winegrowers fashioned local dry white wines, now known as PGI: Côtes de Gascogne. In 1979, these women and men, who put their heart, soul and know-how into producing the best the terroir could offer, decided to strengthen their foothold by uniting their wine cellars and estates. And so they set up the Plaimont union of cooperatives.”
