Le Gout d'Autrefois Blanc Lime
A Throwback to the 60’s in France
The Carlile Room, June 2016
“Perfect summer bubbly. Sauvignon Blanc plus Semillon. Domaine Ducourt Blanc Lime, Bordeaux, France. The summer of 1960, we all wanted JFK as president, Chubby Checker was doing the twist but in the French Riviera… everyone was drinking Ducourt Blanc Lime. Ripe grapefruit nose with a zippy candied lime finish, this sweeter wine is the ultimate throwback hit."
The Ducourt family in partnership with Jean Pierre Xiradakis from Restaurant La Tupina revive Le Blanc Lime. Traditional sparkling white wine based beverage made to an authentic French recipe. A popular drink of yesteryear sipped at cafe counters and during local celebrations.
A pale yellow color with green reflections. A lively nose, fresh, lemony, citrus zest with in-line background notes typical of the Entre-Deux-Mers Sauvignons. A fresh, crisp mouth, a sweetness married to a nervous extension on medium bubbles.
