Colombard/Ugni Blanc/Gros Manseng Blend * 75cl * 12% ABV * Côtes de Gascogne, France
A bit like elderflower cordial with alcohol - pale gold in colour with a youthful rim. Fine and elegant on the nose, with lively citrus notes and exotic fruit giving way to a fresh, nicely balanced palate. Colombard is the mainstay of the blend, with Ugni Blanc and Gros Manseng added for extra depth and interest.
Domaine Saint-Lannes is in the northern part of Gascony, in the south west of France. It's been owned by the Duffour family for over 50 years. The clay and limestone soils give the wines a very typical and expressive character.
