Le Faite Blanc Saint Mont AOC
This is an iconic wine. A mix of Gros Manseng, Petit Courbu and Petit Manseng, it is almost gold in colour. Crisp and fresh with lemon-zest and apple and oodles of minerality. And then, as it opens and warms, comes tropical ripe fruit and a floral rose nose, followed by salinity coupled with honey. Lees and oak aging contribute layers of complexity and a mighty finish – not unlike a great Burgundy. The blending is informed by an open tasting session of journalists and sommeliers. The “wooden” label is a tribute to the growers who kept their wine buried under soil, identified by a wooden marker. One of Gascony’s best kept secrets.
