Domaine de Ménard – Cuvée OR

    AOC CÔTES DE GASCOGNE

    Sweet White

    This Gros Manseng offers a succulent and soft palate, with notes of honey, dried apricot, lemon and candied citrus. This sweet wine has a soft first impression, freshness and a long finish.

    ESTATE

    The history of the estate began in 1920 when Jean François Morel, Swiss winemaker, decided to settle in Gascony to work the vineyard. The estate was just 10 hectares, but now has 120 and the grandchildren of Jean-François are now in charge of the estate. At the heart of the Bas Armagnac, the estate Ménard is located along the famous Via Podensis, a road used for centuries by pilgrims going to Saint Jacques de Compostela.
