Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh

This Pacherenc du Vic Bihl is a tribute to Petit Courbu, the great dry white wine grape of the Southwest, according to Alain Brumont. Risking a cuvée made with almost 100% Petit Courbu, he provides an excellent demonstration of the full potential of this smooth, silky, little-known variety. Like the colours and scents that one encounters in Chateau Bouscassé's beautiful gardens, the Jardins de Bouscassé cuvée develops aromas of exotic fruit and wild flowers, characterizing the fragrant Gascon meadows.
