Winemaker's Notes

Located in the heart of Gascony, the vineyard for the red Colombelle stretches over 200 ha on clay-silt soils. This area benefits from very good sun exposure and from a warm and dry micro-climate to favour the ripening of the grapes.

Garnet red colour with cherry-coloured tints. Fruity aromas of blackcurrant and red berries. A well balanced wine, round and silky in the mouth, with a fresh and fruity finish.

"Herbal, meaty, chewy and acidic, this is a wild little red, ready for a hanger steak grilled rare."

The Vin de Pays de Côtes de Gascogne are regional wines produced in the Gers department.

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.
