Domaine des Cassagnoles Vin de Pays des Côtes de Gascogne 2008
Very refreshing white wine with a nice price tag. Slight spicy aroma on the nose with hints of lemon, citrus, and grass with a nice balance of acidity and sugar. Would go very well with chicken and other white meat or just to sip on while sitting outside this summer.Add winemaker's notes

So many wines in store refrigerators are put there without consideration. My local wine and cheese snob shop, on the other hand, has a knack for picking the best values from their selection. Domaine Des Cassagnoles is their most recent and outstanding choice. Pairs well with summertime vegetables or chicken. At less than $10, this is a French superstar.
Found this at the Chronicle Wine Cellar in Pasadena. I was trying to find something similar to the white wine I tasted at the Polidor in Paris (on rue Monsieur-le-Prince). It was a basic table wine that I had with a chicken dish but from memory I recall it was probably good to drink alone. This bottle isn't exactly the one I had, but it's the same varietal and a close match. And for the price, it is also really, really good.
Light on the tongue. Bright on the taste! Once again, we sold out at our tasting of this wine. We will continue to carry it as it has become a shop favorite!
