Decanter’s Andrew Jefford calls the whites of Gaillac “France’s forgotten luxury wine.” You’ll taste exactly why that is with this classic Perlé release, so named for the exquisite bubbles (or ‘pearls’) that give the wine its trademark, light spritz.
Les Perles hails from Château Vigné-Lourac, where the Gayrel family has been perfecting the art of Perlé wines for over 300 years. A classic blend of local star grapes Mauzac and Loin de l’Oeil, their fresh 2017 has expressive floral aromas, crisp citrus flavors, and that lovely, gentle spritz.
It’s exactly the kind of white you’d sip on a sunny café terrace in this beautiful southern region. In fact, it’s such a local hit, it almost never leaves France ... until now. Pair yours up with a plate of soft cheeses and crackers, or serve at dinner with grilled swordfish kebabs or baked haddock.
Uniquely refreshing – and great value too.
