Super-refreshing, so second-sippable. The nose is filled with zingy citrus, fresh passionfruit and kiwi, with a touch of elderflower. It is like Sauvignon in its sunniest form with no hint of green or the harsh Sauvignon character here. The is bursting with tropical richness and flavour mixed with the most refreshing, zippy, almost salty, lemon rind character. The finish is long mixed with stony herbaceous and tropical fruit and citrus. Flavour-packed, and superb summer drinking, at a mere 11.5%.
Horgelus has long been one of our best value whites for the price. Located in the pretty Gascon village of Montréal du Gers in the foothills of the Pyrenées, on the pilgrimage route of Santiago de Compostela. Winemaker Yoan Le Menn has not put a foot wrong in the 10 years we have known him, and his wines never fail to delight.
