Mary Taylor Côtes de Gascogne White Blend

$15.00

When founding partner Mary Taylor first fell in love with wine in the early 1990’s, it was the European classics that truly spoke to her and stole her heart. As a young professional selling French and Italian wine, first in the New York wine auctions and then as a merchant, she quickly learned to appreciate wine in the “Old World” way— not as a luxury good reserved for special occasions, but a living agricultural product that belongs to everyday life. The Gessler family settled in Gascony (SW France) after immigrating from Switzerland in 1928. Now in their fourth generation of winemakers, a tiny farm has become a robust family business. The domaine is settled deep in the Bas-Armagnac, where the soil is a mix of red clay and sand. A blend of 50% Colombard, 20% Ugni Blanc, 20% Gros Manseng, and 10% Sauvignon Blanc. On the nose, fresh cut flowers and lush, tart lemons. Bright and crisp on the palate with notes of grapefruit, lemon, and tropical fruit.
