Grand Heron Marc Ducournau PGI Côtes de Gascogne 2012

Grand Heron Marc Ducournau PGI Côtes de Gascogne 2012Terry Kirby’s “bargain basement” wine in The Independent is this French white. He wrote: “Let us hope that we have some warm evenings ahead to enjoy bottles such as this, from Gascony’s Plaimont Co-operative, which has become a great source for well-priced wines made from distinctive local grapes, each with singular, individual tastes.

“Made from Colombard and Ugni Blanc grapes, this is really grassy and refreshing, with touches of citrus fruits, and is a perfect aperitif or a partner for lightly spiced fish dishes.”
