2019 LE CHAPEAU QUI RIT (Blanc). Côtes de Gascogne
Alcohol Percentage: 11.5%
Area: Gascony is Armagnac country, south and inland from Bordeaux. Around 30 years ago they learnt how to make inexpensive zingy whites by combining their rather dull Ugni Blanc (base wine for the spirit) with the more aromatic Colombard
Grape Variety: Predominantly Colombard with a touch of Ugni Blanc. Fermented in steel and bottled early to maximise freshness
Old Bridge Rating: This is such good value for money, particularly in the spring and summer when the new vintage has just arrived and the light, spritzy style is so suited to the season.
