Domaine de Pellehaut L'été Gascon

IGP Côtes de Gascogne Medium Sweet White

Domaine de Pellehaut has been owned and managed by successive generations of the Béraut family for over 300 years. Situated in the heart of Gascony, Pellehaut benefits from the region's wonderful microclimate, where the long, sunny, early autumn days (hence the name Eté Gascon - Gascon Summer), are ideal for bringing the grapes to the stage of surmaturation whilst maintaining a degree of refreshing acidity. Eté Gascon is a fabulous sweet wine, dense and rich with intense yet subtle aromas.

    TASTING NOTES

    Golden yellow in appearance with brilliance and limpidity. Pleasingly crisp nose of tropical fruit and fruit in syrup with underlying honey and toast; floral notes. Crunchy fruit on attack, followed by the same aromas as those found on the nose. The sweetness is complemented by crisp freshness. A wine you will never tire of – a gentle introduction to Côtes de Gascogne wines.

    Yellow, slightly golden-hued, the nose displaying tropical fruit with a touch of peach and apricot. This wine takes your tastebuds on a voyage from tropical islands to the orchards of southern France. Soft and vibrant at the same time, this wine is a great accompaniment for festive meals, aperitifs and desserts.

    TASTING NOTES

    A yellow wine with an intense nose of tropical fruit – pineapple, kiwi, mango and papaya, nicely set off by a hint of mandarin orange. On the palate, this wine is a fruit salad in itself, balancing softness, tonicity and freshness, and will make a marvellous match for any festive meal, aperitif or dessert.
