Carpe Guilhem 2015 - Domaine San de Guilhem, Côtes de Gascogne

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Côtes de Gascogne is an amazing region mainly known for Armagnac. However, the area offers as well numerous great terroirs for white wines. The wine displays an intense and fresh bouquet, which is typical of Côtes de Gascogne, with aromas of citrus fruits and herbs. The mouthfeel is very fresh, long on the palate and has a nice salty touch. I suggest you serve it along with cod and melon. 

 

Terroir

150 km far from the seashore, domaine San de Guilhem benefits simultaneously from the strong continental heat of the south-west of France as well as from fresh winds from the sea. Thanks to that specific configuration, you get very ripe grapes, which explain this intensity, as well as a high level of acidity which gives this remarkable freshness.

lecepage Grape variety

The large number of varieties used in the blend contributes to the wine’s complexity. Colombard, a typical variety of Gascogne, gives the fruity aromas. It is almost all the time blended with ugni blanc, which enriches the wine with floral flavours. Eventually, gros manseng, often used to elaborate sweet wines, gives the wine its light sweetness.

lemillesime Vintage

The summer was warm and dry, sometimes scorching. Fortunately, it was balanced by fresh night during the second half of August. This phenomenon favoured the production of an organic compound named “thiols” that gives to San de Guilhem 2015 its aromas of citrus and exotic fruits, quite common in wines from Côtes de Gascogne. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

A few months ago, you discovered through My VitiBox an amazing Spanish wine: Marquès del Villar. Domaine San de Ghuilem is ruled by the same group of friends, led by Lionel Osmin and former rugby international player Imanol Harinordoquy. Harinordoquy eventually retired from the field to dedicate his time to winemaking on each sides of the border between France and Spain. I think you’ll agree with us that his career in wine is as promising as his career in rugby was successful.
