A wine-growing area for many years given over to producing Armagnac brandy, this land of plenty enjoyed a winemaking revival in the late 1970s, when André Dubosc rediscovered a local grape variety called “French Colombard” at a wine tasting event in the United States! This Gascon visionary then went on to develop winegrowing and winemaking techniques to bring out the best of the Colombard variety, on its native soil.
Exuberance and freshness
Our Cotes de Gascogne wines offer a wide variety of dry and sweet wines, red and rosé wines, all characterised by full flavours and freshness.
A unique terroir.
The vineyards here in Gascony are lush, green and generous, and the night-time harvests enhance the freshness and the aromatic potential of these white grape varieties. After alcoholic fermentation the “thiols” develop aromas of exotic and citrus fruits, which are so characteristic of our Gascony wines.
