More about this wine from Côtes de Gascogne, France
This Sauvignon Blanc-Colombard blend hails from the Southwest part of France. SB is one of the OG grapes. Quiz time! Other Noble Grapes include Merlot, Cabernet, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling. Surprise... they're all French grapes! This is partly thanks to a great marketing campaign enacted unwittingly by King Louis XIV. The monarch developed such a reputation for extravagance and luxury that the rest of the world started to crave all things French, including the wine.

It’s also partly just due to the rich wine history in France — they’ve spent centuries perfecting their craft, priming it for global domination. The Morel family behind this bottle of wine have been tending to their vines since 1927, and cultivate fruit-forward, dry white wines. This bottle is fresh, zippy, and has quite a bit of zest! A fresh and zesty white wine made from young vines growing on sandy and limestone soils. The nose is fresh with fragrances of lemon curd, white flowers, and red grapefruits, while the palate is shimmery creamy citrus.
How to drink it

Pro Tip:

This Sauvignon Blanc-Colombard is full of zesty and refreshing flavors, so you can't go wrong with a simple, bright citrus salad with burrata.
