Domaine de Pouy

2013 White Blend

Cotes de Gascogne France


Domain de Pouy is located in the foothills of the Pyrenees, about two hours southwest of Bordeaux.  To prevent oxidation, the grapes were taken from the vines to the vats in isothermal tanks protected by a layer of inert gas.  The grapes are then loaded into one of eight 50-ton pneumatic temperature-controlled presses, followed by skin contact maceration for eight to 12 hours before being gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks.   The must is then transferred to underground cold storage vats and kept there for three to five days.  Dry ice and refrigerated vats are used to slow fermentation.  The final result is a fresh and smooth blend consisting of Ugni Blaanc (60%) and Colombard (40%) with a penetrating floral green apple fragrance and loaded with refreshingly crisp and flavorful fruit, ideal with fish or seafood dishes.  TEG
