White French Petit Manseng
The Vibe - The Lapeyre sec is made of 100% Gros Manseng. The grapes come mainly from a vineyard called Herrua. Bottled using natural cork stoppers. An expressive and intensely citrus nose, with notes of white fruits and green hazelnut. Fresh and fruity on the attack, with a taught, aromatic and well-balanced palate with good persistence... typical of Gros Manseng grown at 400m in altitude. "Lovely nose of white flower and marzipan, sharp attack on the palate with dancing acidity bringing out the pure crystalline citrus fruit flavours: lemon and pink grapefruit, zesty cleansing finish. Drink with shellfish, or with fish dishes with spicy, curried or saffron sauces. Will go well with a tender and tasty goat’s cheese or a fresh sheep’s milk cheese, or just a slice of air-dried ham or sausage.
