Domaine de Pellehaut L'Escoubasso

IGP Côtes de Gascogne Sweet white

The dialect word “escoubasso” means conclusion, a job done, completion. In Gascony, the “escoubasso” is the big meal held to celebrate the end of the harvest. At Domaine de Pellehaut, the blocks of Petit Manseng are the last to be harvested (late October). This is why, in the Armagnac appellation and at Château de Pellehaut, we celebrate the end of the grape harvest with an escoubasso!

    TASTING NOTES

    A golden yellow hue evocative of warm sand. Floral fragrances and tropical fruit aromas play around the nostrils. The light, tropically flavoured palate finishes on a fresh, citrussy note. Enjoy as an aperitif, with an hors d’oeuvre of foie gras, or as a dessert wine.

    AGEING

    Drink within 3-5 years after the vintage. Good cellaring potential.
