Forget Cloudy Bay, forget Pouilly-Fumé and Sancerre, this Horgelus Sauvignon/Gros Manseng blend costs almost half the price and delivers as much if not more. Typically it shows bright, lifted notes of lemon/lime, melon and grapefruit and a delicate herbaceous character. The Sauvignon Blanc element brings a classic nettle and elderflower zip, while the Gros Manseng gives a gorgeous tropical fruit depth. Endlessly quaffable. Drink from: the moment it's in your possession. Drink until: the bottle is empty.
Horgelus has long been our best value white forthe price.Afamily estate founded in 1978 by Joseph Le Menn, this is one of the larger wineries we deal with, covering 66 hectares of vines. Le Menn saw an opportunity in Gascony to get the best out of a region formerly known only forits brandies.
