2016 Côté – Chardonnay & Sauvignon, Côtés de Gascogne, Tariquet

2016 Côte – Chardonnay & Sauvignon, IGT Côtés de Gascogne, 
Domaine du Tariquet, Famille Grassa

This is another white from The Wine Society's South-West France Whites case (£75 for a case of 12 bottles). 2016 Côté is an attractively clean blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The Chardonnay giving softness and some weight, while the Sauvignon Blanc gives crisp citric notes. A good aperitif. Made by the Grassa family at the long established Domaine du Tariquet.
