Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and crisp

Light yellow colour with white gold sheen. Straightforward nose with exotic fruits and citrus fruits. Aromas of Pomelos. Lively attack, acidulous, tension, freshness. Clear and typical character. Good persistence.

Robe
Clear pale with straw tints

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Do you know ?

Colombelle, the seductive Gascon cuvée in existence for 30 years, has nevertheless had to cross the Atlantic before resurfacing in French glasses.

Domain and appellation

  • PLAIMONT EN GASCOGNE

    A land of wine long devoted to Armagnac, Gascony experienced a wine-growing renaissance at the end of the 1970s when André Dubosc, a local child, rediscovered a Gers grape variety called "French Colombard" during a tasting in the United States. The visionary Gascon discovers a very aromatic white wine, it is a revelation, this Gers grape variety could be the future of the Côtes de Gascogne. Over time, Colombelle has become the emblematic cuvée of the Côtes de Gascogne.
