Chateau Louvignes Gaillac Blanc Sec 2015

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a local supermarket for £5.50.Gaillac is an appellation created in 1938,although viticulture in the area goes back at least as far as the Romans,for red,rose,white and sparkling wines from 50 communes around the small town of that name some 50 miles north-east of Toulouse in the Tarn valley Chateau Louvignes is a label or brand sometimes used by Chateau Clement Termes,a well established family concern, for some of their supermarket chain customers.My bottle consists of 50% muscadelle,40%loin de l'oil, and 10% mauzac,the last two grapes being native to south-west France. I started my bottle last night with my supper of fried tuna and salad. It is a dry wine with plenty of a sour apple,gooseberry and elderflower style fruit although it is not that acidic and is really a bit mineral. .In short,it is a little bit reminiscent of a sauvignon blanc but it was a good accompaniment to my tuna supper
