Gaillac Blanc Sec Château Clément-Termes Côtes du Tarn, South West 2018
Gaillac is one of the most innovative wine growing areas in France and the range of grape styles is amazing. Chateau Clement Termes was founded in 1868 in the historic bastide town of Montaigut and the wines were originally delivered all over France in oak barrels, the clients being largely composed of churchmen. The Chateau remains within the David family to this day and respect for tradition and traditional grape varieties remains undimmed.
A pale straw-yellow in colour. On the nose, fragrant apple-blossom and white flowers. Floral, fruity on the palate with notes of green herbs, this is understated and yet satisfying. The acidity is pronounced leading to a lip-smacking finish.
Grapes: Mauzac, Loin de l'Oiel (literally 'far from the eye') and Sauvignon Blanc
