La Caisse, Blanc, Vin de France, France, 2022

Producer Profile

La Caisse is a charming and delightfully fresh wine from Gascogny,

created using the traditional varieties of Ugni Blanc and Colombard by Chief Winemaker Frédéric Garrabou. All wrapped up under a playful label design to appeal to a wide audience of wine lovers.

Viticulture

Gascogny in the southwest of France covers a large area between Bordeaux and the Spanish border. It is also home to some of France’s oldest vineyards. An area of stunning scenery, medieval architecture and a strong gastronomic tradition. Wines of the region are often classified as IGP Cotes de Gascogne, yet in this instance ‘La Caisse’ is under the broader designation of Vin de France, which offers more flexibility in terms of permitted grape varieties and geographical limits.

Oak Ageing

No oak ageing

Tasting Note

Offering up intense floral aromas of ripe peach, citrus and green apple. The palate is bright, with a textural touch coming from the time on lees, providing balance to the vivid, racy acidity.

Food Matching

Enjoy this wine chilled, as an aperitif or with goat cheese, calamari, and grilled fish.
