Domaine de Pouy, 2004

I wanted a zingy white wine for sipping, and this little gem, Domaine de Pouy, did the trick. Made from Colombard and Ugni Blanc, it has a bright and floral nose. In the mouth it is crisp, has great acidity and citrus fruit, particularly lemon, and finishes with a definite hint of grapefruit. The fruit flavors are backed up by solid minerals and an herbaceous note in the mouth. This Vin de Pays is from the Côtes des Gasgogne, a region most notable for Armagnac. It retails for about $10, and is an exceptional value. Stands on its own as an aperitif, or pairs with seafood of all kinds, including basa, sole, or mussels.
