Sometimes all you need is a wine that doesn’t fight with you. A wine that’s just easy. You’ve had a long day, work is still on your brain, and the last thing you need to be doing is pondering over a glass of wine. You still want something tasty, but not complex. Mont Gravet Côtes De Gascogne is just what the doctor ordered.
Made in Southwest France from the grape Colombard, which is a cross between Chenin Blanc and Gouais Blanc, this is an affordable – we’re talking under ten bucks affordable – chuggable white that is perfect for helping you unwind at the end of the day. It’d also be ideal while lounging in front of the TV or passing around at your next book club. That’s because it’s a wine that’s enjoyable, but it doesn’t demand your attention, allowing you to focus on other things that matter.
In the glass the wine pours a bright pale yellow with strong aromas of lemons, peaches, pears and herbs. On the palate the wine has a racy acidity balanced by a fruit forward flavor profile. It’s sure to be a crowd pleaser.
