Gros Manseng Moelleux 2016 Côtes de Gascogne - Vignoble des Aubas


This wine is a wonderful semi-sweet from Gascony. The local Gros Manseng grape is harvested when slightly over-ripe to allow some sweetness to develop - however it contains only 40 grams of residual sugar per liter, compared to 100-150 for sweet wines like Sauternes. As a result, it exhibits yummy aromas of candied fruit and honey, while some acidity balances the sweet touch. A great bottle which can be tasted by itself, with Asian food, foie gras or pudding.
