The bouquet of this white wine from Gascony captivates with notes of honeysuckle, lemongrass, lime and orange. It is its fruity nature that makes this wine so special.
This French wine delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with 6.2 grams of residual sugar. As you would expect from a wine beyond the 4-euro mark, this French wine naturally enchants with the finest balance despite all its dryness. Aroma does not necessarily need a lot of sugar. On the palate, the texture of this light-footed white wine is wonderfully light and crisp. Due to its present fruit acidity, the Fleur de d'Artagnan Blanc Côtes de Gascogne presents itself wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. The finish of this youthful white wine from the wine-growing region of Gascony, more precisely from Côtes de Gascogne, finally thrills with considerable reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral notes of the soils dominated by limestone and sand.
