Gros Manseng Doux

Gros Manseng Doux

Côtes de Gascogne

Alain Brumont has always been passionate about Gascony; for him it represents an exceptional reserve of micro-terroirs. On these sunny slopes, the Gros Manseng produces a generous, particularly well-balanced wine; the natural acidity is perfectly matched to the sweetness on the palate, producing a remarkable explosion of fruit.
