Region: France> Southwest> Gascogne.
Notes: No oak. Acidity: High.
Wines from Colombard and Ugni Blanc grapes, grown in France’s Southwest region, are traditionally used to produce Cognac and Armagnac. The estate is located in the foothills of Pyrénées, about two hours southwest of Bordeaux. The wine has a penetrating floral green apple fragrance and is loaded with refreshingly crisp acidity. Yves Grassa, the proprietor of Domaine de Pouy, has invested intelligently in modern vinification equipment in order to assure that this exuberant, super aromatic, light-bodied dry white is the standard to which others are held. Pouy has been a perrenial Robert Parker favorite for the last 20 years.
Food Pairing: chicken, seafood, vegetable, soft cheese.
