Domaine Saint-Lannes wine
This week is all about well-crafted, affordable wines. Domaine Saint-Lannes is a family estate located in heart of Gascony, between Bordeaux and Toulouse. In a region known for its Armagnac, the Duffour family - owner since the 1970’s - also makes brilliant wines with both local (Colombard, Gros-Manseng, Tannat) and classic grapes (Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot). The property is a perfect balance between modern and traditional winemaking technique - all the vineyards benefit from a sustainable agriculture.
The wines of the Domaine are anything but pretentious: simple but authentic wines of the South West. Fresh, aromatic, un-oaked and all very well-balanced, we pretty much liked every single wines we tasted from the Domaine. For this week’s offer we have selected four wines to showcase this under-rated appellation, among which the Côtes de Gascogne Signature: this blend of local white grapes will make you wonder why every pub in the country does not have one like this to replace their tasteless wines!
