  • Winemaker Notes Gascony, lying between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees Mountains, is home to vineyards with real character, just like the men who cultivate them. Alain Brumont is the leader here. He was a pioneer in Madiran and Côtes de Gascogne wines, bringing them to rank with the world’s best. Alain Brumont has always been passionate about Gascony; for him it represents an exceptional reserve of micro-terroirs; here it produces a convivial, very expressive, fruity, fresh "vin de pays". The combination of the Gros Manseng's structure and freshness with the Sauvignon's aromas and fruitiness results in a cuvée with a unique style.
  • Tasting Notes The Sauvignon gives the bouquet notes of flowers and citrus and yellow fruit. The Gros Manseng brings length, freshness and balance. The palate is lively and energetic. This wine has very little residual sugar and can accompany almost any meal.
