The sweet wines from the southwest of the Gers region, made in small quantities, bring together two of the greatest grapes of the French southwest. The wine is in fact semisweet, with a dry undertone as well as acidity. It has hints of botrytis as well as orange marmalade, with a tangy aftertaste. Drink from 2019.
