Domaine de Pellehaut Ampelomeryx

IGP Côtes de Gascogne White

An original, easy-to-drink wine. The distinctive trait of this wine is the nose, with its powerful bouquet of white fleshed fruit (peach and apricot). The vanilla notes are a sign of masterful barrel-ageing. The structure and fatness of the Chardonnay predominate on the front-of-palate, while the predominating characteristics at the finish are the freshness and elegance of the Petit Manseng. A truly great dry white wine, displaying remarkable balance and originality.

    TASTING NOTES

    A pale yellow hue, with an intense, expressive nose of citrus and jammy fruit. The tangy vibrancy of the palate sweeps you away to orchards of peach and apricot, and at the finish to fields of citrus blossom. Drink chilled with fish or poultry.

    AGEING

    To drink young, within the 5 years following the vintage.

    TASTING NOTES

    Yellow in hue, brilliant, with green tints –green like the tropical landscape in which the Ampelomeryx roamed some 17 million years ago. The nose takes you to a world of ripe, jammy peach, apricot and lemon, made even more intense on the palate thanks to the ample, velvety structure. A wine that’s easily tamed though no human has ever encountered the animal… A wine to drink as an aperitif, or with fish or poultry right through to the cheese.
