Ripe stone fruits with a good grip of mineral freshness
Southern French Buyer Mark Hoddy is always on the look out for something new to dazzle your taste buds. He discovered the Pugibet brothers, François and Vincent, growing a few rows of Cabernet Blanc at their 19th century family estate in the Languedoc. They had been working with Swiss and German ampelographers to trial this variety. Making white wine from red grapes is always tricky because of the colour, so they had cultivated a Cabernet variety with white skins and white flesh. It's a real hit – lending an opulent texture to the wine, as well as appealing, bright apricot and apple fruit with underlying mineral freshness. Lees aged, it has a lovely creaminess too. Gently chill and serve on its own or with chicken, salmon or noodles.
"Right up my street. At 14.5 abv could be described as a big white, lovely. Full flavour"
