2013 Domaine de Millet Cotes de Gascogne Blanc

SKU #1163968

Cotes de Gascogne is primarily known for the production of Armagnac; it wasn’t until the last 10 years or so that producers began to take table wine production seriously. Traditionally, these wines would have been distilled into Armagnac. Producers found that by fermenting at lower temperatures in stainless steel, they could develop and preserve more powerful aromatics. Though yields are high, costs have stayed low and the wines are consequently some of the best bargain whites in France. Domaine de Millet is first and foremost an Armagnac producer. They are fifth generation producers with the reins now in the hands of daughter Laurence. The Côtes de Gascogne Blanc is an expressive blend of 50% Colombard and 50% Ugni Blanc. This wine is a great alternative white for you Sauvignon Blanc drinkers out there. It is loaded with peach and citrus aromatics and has vibrant acidity and clarity.

While exploring more white wines, I was introduced to this by a fellow staff member. It has a great peach smell with a cider-like crisp to it. This is a great find, plus it is less than ten dollars!
Top Value!
