Domaine de Maubet Sauvignon/Colombard, Côtes de Gascogne
This blend of Ugni Blanc, Colombard, Gros Manseng and Sauvignon Blanc grape varieties is a crisp ultra clean white that has mouthwatering flavours of apple and citrus and even a hint of gooseberry. Great with fish or seafood and brilliant on its own as an aperitif.

Their descendants have continued to practice general farming (maize, cereals, livestock farming, wine growing) until the 1980's. In 1985, Aline and Jean Claude Fontan decided to make the Domaine a property producing exclusively wine. The first bottles of wine for marketing vins de Pays des Côtes de Gascognes Domain de Maubet was made in 1987. The first bottling plant was bought in 1992.
