Les Fumées Blanches - Réserve 2016 - François Lurton, Côtes de Gascogne

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

When you open a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, you expect to find all the freshness and the minerality that characterize this grape variety. But this wine is the exception that proves the rule. This cuvée seduced me with its thick creaminess that perfectly carries its minerality and its citrus aromas. I discovered a new facet of the South West sauvignon, quite untypical, but a real delight ! 

 

Terroir

Located in the heart of Gascony, the vineyard is under the influence of oceanic climate. Thanks to the closeness of the Pyrenees mountains, the high temperature gap between day and night is ideal to preserve sauvignon blanc’s aromas. Indeed, the sugar production is stimulated during the warm period of the day and the natural acidity of the grapes is preserved during the cool period.

lecepage Grape variety

Mainly grown in the Loire Valley, in Bordeaux and in the South-West, sauvignon’s success story goes even beyond French borders and is now famous all around the world. However, depending on the region of production, the sauvignon displays quite different flavours : citrus fruits in the south-west, vegetal, mineral and exotic notes in New Zealand, or stony aromas in the Loire Valley !

lemillesime Vintage

The end of summer and the beginning of autumn were even more marked than in previous years by the so-called Gascon summer. This phenomenon takes place in September and October and implies warm days and cool nights. The winemakers took advantage of this to harvest the night, a true «trademark» of the Côtes de Gascogne, so that they could place fresh grapes in the cellars. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

François Lurton embodies the fifth generation of this great family of winegrowers that is the Lurton family and which is at the origin of this nice wine. Fumées Blanches - Réserve comes from an association of various Côtes de Gascogne sauvignon plots, combining different aromatic profiles to create wines with complex and delicate aromas.
