Winemaker's Notes:

Colombard, 70%. This typical Gascogne variety lends a special fruity note to wine, a powerful and unique aroma with hints of citrus fruit, mango, pineapple or passion fruit.

Ugni Blanc, 30%. This variety brings a floral bouquet, as well as vivacity and balance.

"...its bright with pity grapefruit and sharp green grass notes... it's a steal."
-Wine & Spirits

About Colombelle:

The Vin de Pays de CĂ´tes de Gascogne are regional wines produced in the Gers department. The appellation, created in 1982, was developed after most of the Armagnac vineyards were converted into table wine vineyards. With its oceanic climate tempered by the Landes forests to the west, the Pyrenees to the south and just the right mix of sunshine, rain and coolness the Gers provides ideal conditions to get the best from its vineyards. Our wines also draw their distinctive flavors from the great wealth of Gascony''s soil.
