Gascony Wine

 

Gascony, or Gascogne, is a large region in southwest France that encompasses such appellations as Madiran and Jurancon, as well as the Vin de Pays des Cotes de Gascogne. The reason for the Anglicized name is that, in the Middle Ages, this area part of Aquitaine and thus under British rule.

    Snoothrank:

    Refreshing and fun to drink. Raspberry, strawberry with bright acidity. The temps have been in the high 80's and finally 90 for several days so I served this with watermelon and it worked - wonderfully. Great little quaffer - drink now - Paul 88 points Read More

  • Domaine du Tariquet Classic 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Lithe and with a straw note and a slight separation ring this provides many citrus and melon noted with bright acidity that provides a refreshing and uplifting finish. Go ahead and buy 6 or 8 bottles of this. Paul 88 points Read More

  • Mont Gravet Cotes de Gascogne 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Clean and aromatic with floral notes of ripe melon, elder flower and nectarine on the nose. This is refreshing and light while still being quite flavorful, a full palate of minerality and bright peach and green apple flavors, zesty lime and a brief tropical note on the finish. Excellent value selection.90 pts Read More
