3 Musketeer White

FRENCH WHITE FROM THE THREE MUSKETEER COUNTRY

Nice, fresh and very gulpable, but the best feature here is ‘something different’ flavourwise. The Gros Manseng offers a little earthiness to partner the zest of the Sauvignon, so the feeling is of a French white from the past – frank, but good. Regional character over modern-day fruitiness and prettiness. A welcome new addition to the shelves.

  • Great to see you review this and great to see in the LCBO.
    I ‘found’ this in Montreal last August. After buying one bottle I got a friend to pick up a case for me. Great intensity, delicious and what a value.
    Interesting that this is the only ‘Brumont’ product at the monment. Would be good to see some Montus or Bouscasse’.

    • Arthur, one small step in getting more French wine into the LCBO. Visiting SAQ land next week – will look for your selections. Cheers!
