EASY DRINKING FRENCH WHITE
Haven’t had a Sichel wine in decades so was in need of reconnecting. Glad I did. This Gascony wine is produced from the workhorse Ugni Blanc grape and the aromatic Colombard so the feeling is mainly about niceness. Think of a pretty Pinot Grigio. Super friendly house wine. Perfect for summer parties. A very safe 11% alcohol and a very friendly price too.
For those into details this wine is made by Mathieu & Martin Beraut, in a place called Montreal du Gers, and they are somehow involved with the old wine house of Sichel. Thought I’d share this back-label info.
