2018 Domaine de Pouy Cotes de Gascogne Blanc--April Wine of the Month

If ever we needed a bright, fresh-tasting, no-oak white wine bargain, the time is now! This is a wine to buy by the armloads--a wine that takes the road dust off when you first get home from work.

Cotes De Gascogne is located about 2 hours southwest of Bordeaux and is known for their bright, crisp, utterly refreshing little white wines. Gascony is the land of Armagnac and rich, rustic food:  foie gras, potatoes roasted in goose fat, juicy prunes soaked in the local brandy and cassoulet.  It wasn't until the past few decades that modern winemaking has enabled the locals to make bright, clean white wines sound enough to export, and Domaine de Pouy is a fine example.  This super-value is made from 60% Ugni Blanc and 40% Colombard, cold-soaked on the skins to capture the maximum amount of freshness and aromatics.  No oak aging is used, so that all its high-toned energy is captured.  Tons of bright green apple and melon, little hits of citrus and a racy green finish.  At this price, this is definitely a wine not to over-think, just drink!
