Les Gites Blanc 2019
A brilliantly versatile house white – with or without food.
IGP Pays d’Oc
What we say
Look for creamy, buttery notes from the Chardonnay grape, along with flavours of pears and eve grapefruit from the Vermentino. It is fresh and quaffable enough to make a great aperitif, yet it has enough body, rich-ness and poise to work well with quite a wide range of different dishes but goes very well with white sauces, fish and poultry.
What they say
A soft, quite rounded, fruity blend of the Chardonnay and Vermentino grapes, fresh enough to enjoy on its own, but creamy enough to go brilliantly with white sauces, fish and poultry.
