Floc de Gascogne Blanc (Chiroulet, Domaine)

Domaine Chiroulet, Floc de Gascogne, Southwest, France NV

Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc

FLOWERY, FRESH & FRUITY, SWEET, BRANDY AROMATICS

The AOC Floc de Gascogne is relatively new, established in just 1990. The wine is used as an aperitif and made by blending 2/3 fresh grape juice with 1/3 brandy. In this case it is blended with Armagnac and both must come from the same vineyard. No fermentation occurs. After fortifying the grape juice to between 16% and 18% alcohol, it must be cellared for 10 months and then approved by committee from the appellation before being sold.

Serving Suggestion: Best used as an aperitif wine before dinner, or with a Foie Gras course and some people enjoy this after dinner.

2017 Gros Manseng "La Cote d'Heux" (Chiroulet, Domaine)

Domaine Chiroulet, "La Cote d'Heux" Blanc, Gascogne, France 2017

100% Gros Manseng

TANGY APRICOT & EXOTIC CITRUS, FLORAL SPICE & GENTLE TOAST

Gros Manseng is a grape which frequently hides in the depths of crisp whites from Gascony, often occupying only minute percentages of such blends. Each time we taste a deliciously vibrant and aromatic wine which showcases the grape in a larger role (100% in this instance), we lament the fact that we don't encounter more Manseng! Domaine Chiroulet, a sixth generation estate, brings us this dazzling example filled with tangy citrus, ripe stone fruit, beautiful floral perfume, and a kiss of toasty spice.

Serving Suggestion: Roasted quail w/ young asparagus lightly & butter and a drizzling of lemon juice. Vietnamese seafood soup w/ gigantic shrimp, mussels, tamarind, & basil. Savory fried plantains w/ tomatoes & onions over a bed of baby spinach.
