Domaine de Pouy Côtes de Gascogne 2005
Always one of my favorite inexpensive dry whites, this whole cluster pressed blend of 76% Ugni Blanc, 20% Colombard, and 4% Gros Manseng is all about fruit and freshness. Aromas of grapefruit and flowers jump from the glass of this light-bodied, stainless steel-fermented and aged offering. These wines do not hold up for long in the bottle, but for enjoyment during their first 6-9 months of life they can’t be beat. They provide a wonderful accompaniment to fish and shellfish cuisine.
