Faire Saveur 2016 French White Wine IGP Cotes de Gascogne

Faire Saveur 2016 French White Wine IGP Cotes de Gascogne

Following a long family tradition of observation and respect for the soils of Gascony, this wine was made by a talented 3rd-generation winemaker in the traditional style. The Faire Saveur is a white blend, which in Gascony holds a high honor. Every winemaker in the region guards their secret recipe jealously. The competition between households and wineries can be intense, but the tension is worth it when the wines are this interesting. It's dry but intensely aromatic, and our experts love how crisp and lively it tastes. Serve it chilled alongside a rich seafood dish.

Region

Gascony is in the south-west of France, bordering northern Spain and sitting on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Full of rolling hills and great soils many of the red wines produced here are a perfect accompaniment to the hearty food. The whites, however, are better paired with lighter seafood and vegetables.

Tasting Notes

This wine is incredibly floral, powerful and unique. Strong flavors of passion fruit, mango and pineapple are balanced by the dry, crispness usually found in this type of blend.
