Domaine Séailles (Seh-EYE) is a family-owned winery that was one of the first in Gascony to convert to organic viticulture in 1998, with a vineyard that is very unique in that it is surrounded on all sides by forest. Côtes de Gascogne whites are usually a blend of high yielding grapes that are also used in the production of Armagnac such as Columbard, Gros Manseng and Ugni Blanc. The resulting wines are great values that have a bowl’s worth of yellow fruits. This wine from a unique vineyard, however, uses none of those traditional grape varieties, opting instead for a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and severely low-yielding Sauvignon Gris, a pink-skinned mutation of Sauvignon Blanc that is less aromatic, slightly more tropical, and gives more body. Distinct waxy apple and white raspberry notes that harmonize with the minerals underneath, and pairs well with asian foods.
