Signature 2016 Côtes de Gascogne - Domaine Saint-Lannes


Signature is a subtle blend of local grapes - Colombard, Gros-Manseng and Ugni-Blanc, well-known for their aromatic features - which has received multiple awards from various critics. The grapes are carefully selected during harvest and the wine is then aged in tanks. This cuvée exhibits fresh aromas of citrus and exotic fruit, with a balancing acidity thanks to the local climate - which offers fresh night during summer. The kind of wine we would love to find more often!

What experts say  

Bronze Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards (previous vintage)

Silver Medal at Bettane & Desseauve Prix Plaisir (previous vintage)

Wine-Spectator.jpg

88/100 "This brisk, youthful white has plenty of crunchy peach, tangerine and salt notes that are fresh and inviting. A zippy acidity breaks into the finish of chive, mineral and green apple flavors. Drink now." (previous vintage)

Guide-Hachette.jpg

2* Remarkable Wine "A cuvée dominated by the Colombard. A highly praised wine for its nose of citrus, pineapple and white flowers as well as the silky texture of its palate, the remarkable balance between fat and vivacity, and a great long finish." (previous vintage)

Gilbert-Gaillard.jpg

85/100 "Bright pale yellow color, green reflections. Pleasant nose of pineapple, peach, apple and floral touch. Palate is soft, ample, fresh, the fruit is well put forward. Net and fluid. Well-balanced. Mineral in the final. For seafood." (previous vintage)
