Roc De Belame Cotes de Gascogne Sauvignon Blanc 2019
- Light, aromatic
Here’s one we weren’t meant to get. One of the airlines had snatched up this delicious wine, but then of course didn’t need it. So we stepped in and grabbed it for our mofos. It’s sauv blanc from Gascogne, a region in southwest France that borders upon Spain and the Atlantic. It’s perhaps most famous for being the home of Cyrano de Bergerac and d’Artagnan, but we’re here today for the wine. There’s pears, peaches and some flintiness on the nose. On the palate it is a completely dry wine, but has a certain richness with hints of honey, compote and some citrus to contrast. It’s super lively with a nice balance of fruit sweetness (yet in a dry wine) and minerality. Alexandre Dumas would be enthralled.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Looks like this is either a wine sourced from various regions in France or it's from a smaller region that we haven't gotten around to writing about for you yet! If it's the former, well, it's hard to make general comments about a multi-regional French wine. So let's assume it's the latter: we've been lazy. Forgive us, there's only two of us, and we're mere mortals. We'll get round to writing something inspirational about this obscure (hopefully, otherwise we're in trouble) region eventually. Meanwhile, shoot in your suggestions (and your resume?), or just rejoice in the fact that there's something magical about heading off the beaten track and telling your friends all about that amazing grape that grows in the hinterlands of a place that doesn't even make it on the map – or Vinomofo's regional writeup section, at least.
