Escoubasso is Gascon dialect for a conclusion or job done, and also refers to the celebratory meal held at the end of the grape harvest. Domaine de Pellehaut pick their last parcels of Petit Manseng in late October, turning them into a delectable, sweet, light wine with fresh acidity, honeyed tropical fruit and lovely rich texture, thanks to barrel fermenting and ageing on the lees. For food pairings, try very salty or very sweet!

This is the proud winner of a bronze and gold medal, the latter at the Concours des Vins du Sud-Ouest 2017.

Buy this if...you like sweetness and freshness.

One to put a smile on your face - a fresh, fruity dessert wine that deserves a bit more attention. Gold medal - Concours des Vins du Sud-Ouest 2017

The Producer

Domaine de Pellehaut is a family-owned property and chateau with 250 hectares of vines grown on slopes of up to 180m in altitude. The proximity to the Pyrenees provide a welcome shelter from bad weather, with very low rainfall and warm, sunny summers. Brothers Martin and Mathieu Beraut produce wines from both local and well-known grape varieties, including our very own Rude Reserve Blanc, a blend of Colombard and Chardonnay, with a smattering of Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Manseng and Ugni Blanc.

The Winemaker

The estate operates a ‘lutte raisonnée’ approach to viticulture, preferring the use of organic fertilisers produced on the estate and minimal or no use of pesticides. Grapes are harvested during the cool of the night to preserve the aromatic qualities of these fresh wines and modern techniques used in the winery with an eye to keeping the character of the grape and local character.

The Region

The beautiful Gers region may be one of France’s lesser-known tourist hotspots but then, off-the-beaten-track finds are often the best. Sitting in the heart of the south-west corner of France, this rural landscape, with the stunning backdrop of the Pyrenees, is home to the Cotes de Gascogne, now France’s largest white wine producing area.

Panettone Bread and Butter Pudding

Sweet, spiced and the perfect balance of soft milk soaked panettone and crispy topping. Pair this with a light sweetie from Gascony.
