I believe the Tursan appellation and the baroque grape are unique to each other. Here the grape, thankfully, belies its reputation for producing full-bodied wines with high alcohol levels. This wine, where baroque is used in conjunction with gros manseng and sauvignon blanc, is an understated masterpiece at only 12 per cent ABV and, quite simply, is delicious. Aromatic, floral, lemon but not particularly citrous, slightly spicy on the finish, we have so far enjoyed the wine may as an aperitif and with a rice salad with shellfish.
What a very helpful and erudite review! It’s true that this little known region and grape deserve far more attention! Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback!
A fresh, citrus white, lovely with food or on its own - and at a great price. We always get a couple of bottles in our orders.
This is great too with spicy food - thank you for leaving a review! So helpful to a small business like ours!
We had this white wine at our wedding, and I’m looking forward to ordering more. It pairs really well with lots of different cuisines and is going to be my dinner party white wine of choice!
We are so glad you enjoyed it! It really is a crowd pleaser and goes so well with everything as you say! It was created in SW France by a group of Michelin starred chefs who wanted a white to go with many food styles - so you hit the nail on the head! Thanks for leaving such a nice review!
A really great wine as an aperitif, also not too strong !
Thank you very much for leaving a review of our Tursan Blanc - we are really pleased with this wine on so many levels. Fresh, light and energetic - also works brilliantly with any sort of aromatic herbs and spices. We also appreciate the screw cap for easy access! Thanks again - your reviews are really helpful to us and to others...
My daughter chose which wine for me to buy for her, and she told me it was lovely Julian Dawes
