Tasting Notes: A deliciously aromatic, bright and zingy dry white! A very pretty nose with notes of basil, freshly cut green grass and guavas. The creamy palate continues with more green fruits, flowers and figs. 

Producer Details: In south west France (south of Bordeaux), Gascony is the home of foie gras, d’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers Gascony is cool enough to produce white wines which are streaked with refreshing acidity and sparkle with zesty aromatics perfect for Aldeburgh Bay Blanc de Blancs. 

In The Vineyard: The rolling hills between the scattered medieval towns and villages of Gascony are predominately white wine country. Designated Pays de Gascogne in 1982. Vines are trained using the Guyot system and vigorous grape selection is used to capture the fresh aromatics and flavour of this Blanc de Blancs from the southwest province of Gascony.

In The Winery: On delivery to the cellar, the grapes are cooled by gas (CO2), undergo maceration pelliculaire for 5-15 hours, then pneumatique pressing, and debourbage a froid. Alcoholic fermentation is started by cultured yeast and once fermentation is complete, the wine is conserved on the lees to retain maximum freshness.
