Made from highly aromatic Colombard and Sauvignon Blanc, Le Citronnier bursts with grassy citrusy aromas and dances across the palate with the juicy tang of gooseberries, grapefruit and ripe lemons. Can you imagine a wine more evocative of summer?
"Lovely, fresh tasting wine. Lovely, citrus clean, crisp flavour"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
As Jamie Goode concluded in the Sunday Express, Gascony is “a brilliant source of inexpensive, fresh, bright, fruity wines. If you like New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, this is an alternative with the same sort of flavour profile, but for much less money”. Le Citronnier combines Gascony’s top white grape, Colombard, for its crisp green apple fruit, with Sauvignon Blanc (star of the Loire, Bordeaux and New Zealand of course) for ripe, tropical notes and a brilliant citrusy edge. It’s so lemony fresh we had to call it Le Citronnier. Priced for everyday drinking, this evocative white is ideal for summer soirées and lazy garden afternoons. Keep it in the fridge for any sign of sunshine or enjoy with leafy salads, a spicy stir-fry or grilled fish.
