2012 Domaine de Pouy Côtes de Gascogne Blanc
Yves Grassa, the proprietor of Domaine de Pouy, has invested intelligently in modern vinification equipment in order to assure that this exuberant, super aromatic, light-bodied dry white is the standard to which others are held. The estate is located in the foothills of Pyrénées, near the appellations of Madiran and Jurançon, about two hours southwest of Bordeaux. The cold fermentation of Ugni Blanc from the Bas-Armagnac region captures vibrant aromatics and guards freshness. The wine has a penetrating floral green apple fragrance, and is loaded with refreshingly crisp and flavorful fruit. Domaine de Pouy has consistently been one of our finest values, and above all, it is simply delicious! 60% Ugni Blanc & 40% Colombard. 11.5% abv.
