Domaine de Guiron – Wine as we know it

By | February 11, 2008
We had a Domaine de Guiron 2006 from Laithwaites this weekend. It was fine. It was clear and bright, it smelled fresh and citrussy with a little green grass. It was dry with a medium high acidity. It tasted like wine, slighly acidic, slightly fruity, with a little bit of lemon and apple. It tasted best cold. It was light in body and alcohol with 11.5%.
It’s made of a mix of French workhorse grapes including Colombard and Ugni Blanc. It would taste great if you were picnicking on a sunny day, and you’d love it bits if you were drinking it outside on a sunny day in Gascony.
It is rather over-priced for an ordinary wine, there’s better choices out there, and it’s fun to look for them.
