Domaine de Menard

2014 Cuvee Marine White Wine Blend

Cotes de Gascogne France


This blend of three varietals (60% Colombard, 20% Ugni Blanc and 20% Gros Manseng) hails from Cotes de Gasgogne in southwest France.  The vineyards of Domaine de Menard are composed of fossilized oyster shells, remarkably similar to those of Chablis and Sancerre, which gives this wine its distinct mineral complexity and makes it taste a  lot more expensive than it is.  Crisp, zesty and fresh, but slightly richer in style that your average Cotes de Gascogne, the nose oozes grapefreuit with hints of lemon peel and cut grass.  With a low alcohol level, it is the perfect wines to enjoy in the sun with barbecued prawns and baked sea bass with lemon and herbs.  11.5% ABV PMY
