We have been looking for a great value, everyday drinking white wine – and we have found it with this super Cotes de Gascogne from South West France.
Almost transparent, this wine gives an impression of aerial lightness. Great aromatic intensity on the nose, with tropical notes followed by floral scents such as lemon, peach, grapefruit, elderflower, hawthorn and lime blossom; a whole flowering fruit orchard to discover. The palate offers fine balance between the fresh atack and the long, fruity finish. Sniff the empty glass and you’ll find the aromas still there, as intense and lingering as ever!
Chateau de Pellehaut has been in the hands of the Béraut family for four centuries, however it wasn’t until 1950, when agronomy graduate Gaston Béraut took over, that they stopped entrusting the running of the vineyard to tenant farmers and began managing the estate themselves. Successful producers of Armagnac, they applied for permission to produce wines under the Vins des Cotes de Gascogne appellation in the 1980s. Today the estate is run by the sons of Gaston, Martin and Mathieu, producing a broad range of still wine, sparkling wine, and Armagnac.
