Chateau de Laubade Floc de Gascogne Vin de Liqueur 750ml

SKU #1047790

This adaptation of a 16th century recipe is a recreation from the dark ages, but seems unusually modern. A blend of fresh grape juice and young Bas Armagnac, this light aperitif is versatile and has mass appeal. A blend of 50% Colombard and 50% Ugni Blanc, production consists of 100% free-run juice which is settled and decanted. Next, once a year, the fresh grape juice and young Armagnacs are blended in a closed vat. This is the Floc and is left to settle until the end of winter. Color: Straw-colored, gold-tinted. Nose: honey, candied fruit, quince and stone fruit. Palate: Intense and invigorating - subtle and appealing grape, peach and citrus flavors with a distinct acidity, sweetness is not overpowering. Perfect substitute for Lillet and should be served similarly chilled. Also works well with chocolate and ice cream desserts.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
