Tim’s Tasting Notes

88

2011 François Lurton, Janeil, Gros Manseng & Sauvignon, Côtes de Gascogne

£7.25, 12.5%, Oddbins

Tasted at: Oddbins tasting

The sort of wine that has made Gascony one of the best value-for-money white wine regions in France, this is a comparativley unusual blend of Sauvignon and Gros Manseng, a grape more often found in Jurançon. It's tangy, refreshing and crisp, with peach, apricot and grapefruit flavours and a zesty finish.
