The opinion of the sommelier

We already offered a wine from the Pellehaut estate a few months ago. We got many enthusiastic feedbacks, so I decided to select another wine from the same winemaker. Once again, it is a white wine, but a sweet wine this time. Balanced, and surprisingly light, which is rarely the case with sweet wine, this wine is one of my favourites of the moment and this is a very good value for money!  



Located on the same hill as the Chateau Pellehaut, turned toward the south, the vineyard benefits from a very good exposure to the sunshine. This terroir gives very mature grapes, with a lot of sugar, and a low acidity. This is how the winemaker can make wines so soft.

lecepage Grape variety

We have not had many opportunities to discover Gros Manseng with My Vitibox! This grape grows in the south west of France and is widely used in production of sweet wines. You will recognize it by its aromas of apricot and quince among others. It is less rich and less refined than its cousin, Petit Manseng. However it gives rise to wines that I find very enjoyable.


The region of Gers gets almost every year a very long summer with a lot of sun. However, the 2013 vintage in the south west was difficult. The weather was changing all the time and it brought diseases and rot. Fortunately, Gros Manseng is strong and naturally resists to most diseases. Still, the wine makers had to use all of their expertise to harvest only beautiful grapes despite the harsh conditions. 

lerecoltant A wine, a family

A long time ago, many farms in the south west of France were making their own wine. Most of them gave up farming to only focus on wine, and Pellehaut is one of the rare estate still mixing farming and winemaking. It’s a very precious resource for the culture: the cows are fed the cereals and then produce the best natural fertiliser.
