10-19-15 Word On Wine Go Cotes de Gascoigne!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

It’s been ages since Mary and I had a chance to sample some wine together!  Work gets in the way of so many important things.  I bought a couple of whites from the Cotes de Gascoigne and we couldn’t have been happier.  Both of these wines were made from a combination of Gros Manseng, Colombard and Uni Blanc and both were well under $10.  In fact if I remember correctly you could pick these up for around $8 if you buy a case.

1)2014 Domaine de Cassagnole.  Cotes De Gascoigne.  $9.  Had some good zip and more than enough fruit to balance it out.  This was a Peter Weygandt offering and for whatever reason Mary and I often have good luck with his choices.  That’s probably because he seems to know what he’s doing.  BTW I have never met Mr. Weygandt nor am I related to him!  I have bought lots of his bottles with nice results!

2)2014 Domaine De Pouy.  $9.  This wasn’t quite as defined as the previous wine but it was also lovely.  In fact we’ve been enjoying it for several days now!  This was a Robert Kacher Selection and frankly you can buy either of these with your eyes closed.

Here is our show…Enjoy!
