Domaine La Hitaire, 2006 Les Tours, 10.5 % Alc./Vol., 750 ml
White Gascogne wine: 65% Ugni Blanc, 30% Colombard and 5% Gros Manseng.
You might think, ah, another CHEAP ($10 here in Philly) French wine. But don’t be so quick to judge, b/c this one’s a definite keeper.
Pale yellow color with a subtle aroma. Well balanced, with low acidity and very little aftertaste. Smooth and understated, with hints of citrus, peach and apple.
Domaine La Hitaire would make a great choice for people who don’t normally care for whites like Chardonnay because of their intensity.
Overall, a light, crisp and super easy-drinking wine. YUM-YUM.
