The South of France is one of the greatest wine regions in France... discuss! It may not have the grandeur of Bordeaux or the cachet of Burgundy, ok. But what it does have is a monopoly on a ravishingly zesty style of white that won't break the bank. And for that we should rejoice. Not only is this Chardonnay Gros Manseng combination unique, it's also very, very lovely. It has an exceptional nose of pears with hints of tropical fruit and a palate that's slick, precise and mouth-watering, with pear-skin texture.
