This super-drinkable blend of Colombard and Gros Manseng is fresh, clean and lively with intense exotic fruit aromas. Crisp, clean and zesty in the mouth, it offers delicate flavors of citrus fruit and grapefruit, and a long lingering finish. A great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.

Domaine Duffour (aka Domaine La Salette) is located near the town of Condom, in the Armagnac area of southwest France It is considered as one of the finest wine properties in Gascony, itself one of the most beautiful historic vineyards in France. Indeed, given England’s long historical association with the area, including, at one point, ownership, it is surprising that the vinous links are not more evident…we seem to reserve all of our energies for the purchasing of wines from near-by Bordeaux. . Current owner Michel Duffour started in 1982 and was joined by his son Nicolas in 2005. Alongside Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, the family specialize in local varietals Gros Manseng, Tannat, Colombard (80+ years old) and Ugni Blanc vines, the last of which is also used for the production of Armagnac.

Rose Murray-Brown MW - "This blend of lemony, nutty flavours has a surprisingly rich weighty palate, considering its moderate alcohol (12 per cent)."

Most amazing wine ever

I am a sommelier (turned doctor). this wine blew my mind. Delicious citrus undertones, very crisp drinking experience. NO HANGOVER. I am red wine drinker but this bottle has converted me. It is delicious and compliements many food varities.
Most importantly, the team at The Good Wine Shop were fantastic! The online ordering was easy peasy and the team were so polite and helpful when i called them to make sure the order had been received. Even more importantly, the delivery arrived within 48 hours and in plenty of christmas eve/Christmas day. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed drinking this wine and it will become a stable/go to product for me when i fancy a nice drink.
Many thanks and happy new year! Crisanto x
