Story

Georges Vigouroux brought Château de Haut-Serre back to life after it had been devasted by Phylloxera in the 1970s. The Estate covers 148 acres of high-elevation clay-rich soils. Californian vintner Paul Hobbs works in collaboration with the family on this label. Château de Haute-Serre honored in 1889 by being placed on a Gala menu in line with the famous Château Margaux and Pommard wines! In Quercy, everything that is precious is black... starting with the local wine, called «the black wine of Cahors» by the English in the Middle Ages. For four generations, this «black wine» has flowed the Vigouroux family’s veins.

Vineyard

Tawny sands and boulbènes bring together alluvium and clay soils.
With an oceanic and temperate climate, the Gers is in a privileged position: just the right amount of sun, rain and coolness.

Vinification

This very crispy wine is made via very advance winemaking processes,with cold fermentation in non-oxidativesystem to preserve the fruit and the finesse of sauvignon.

Tasting Notes

Gouleyant white has a beautiful crystalline pale color. This wine is a very seductive Sauvignon Blanc. The nose is appealing with exotic fruits and citrus aromas. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced between acidity and fruitiness, the finish is persistent and refreshing.

Food Pairing

It pairs well with shellfish, seafood and grilled fish or fish in sauces. It is also an ideal companion for poultry of which the Gascogne is a leading producer: an opportunity to suggest a menu with ingredientsfrom the same region.
