Born in the mid-eighties, Colombelle L’Original has become the emblematic wine of Côtes de Gascogne over the years. Recognised throughout the world for its inimitable aromatic and crisp style, Colombelle is a perfect reflection of this region of South-West France, between ocean and mountains, a fine mixture of exuberance and freshness.
It is pale in color, with green highlights. The bouquet in the nose is intensely fruity and fresh, dominated by pale stone fruit flavors and shot through with citrus and passionfruit notes. In the mouth it is simple and fruity, expressing the nose aromas with a floral touch and a crisp, zesty lemon-lime finish.
A pleasure to drink from the aperitif onwards, and pairs well with sushi. An ideal partner wine for crab, fish tagine, salmon and dill, or poultry with preserved lemon. It is also a perfect match for Moroccan, Indian and Oriental cuisine, and marvellously complements ewe’s cheese and fresh goat’s cheese, followed by mango panna cotta or lemon cheesecake for dessert.
