"This is the most exciting discovery I have made since I began writing this column — a true revelation! It soars from the glass with an extraordinary vitality and energy that belies its modest origins. It is drinking perfectly now, so I would merely enjoy it while it is so intense and delicious. There are traces of citrus and apricots in the background with floral notes from the small amount of Sauvignon Blanc grapes included. Made in the foothills of the Pyrenées, the owners only pick the grapes in the early hours of the day to preserve their aromatics. Fabulous." Bruce Palling, The Week


Tasting Notes

One of our all-time best-selling producers, Domaine Horgelus is based in sunny Gascony. While this is traditional Armagnac country, it's also a happy hunting ground for seekers of great-quality, great-value aromatic whites. These are typically made using indigenous South-West France grape varieties Petit Manseng and Gros Manseng, which produce intensely flavoured wines with good acidity, apricot and quince fruit character, and spicy/floral notes.
