French Table White  
 Estate Bottled

Gascony, France

80% Colombard, 10% Ugni Blanc,10% Gros Manseng
Sauvignon Blanc and White Bordeaux and lovers wait ‘til you taste this! 
Fresh and Tangy, this will wake up your palate and the warmer weather fare you pair with it!
Once you sip you may be drinking this all summer!

This is Fran Kysela's selection; he is a Master Sommelier and renowned importer. It's pet project out of Gascony.
We are very fortunate that Fran is based  in nearby Winchester, VA as his portfolio of wines is outstanding.  
He was named 
The Wine Enthusiast 2013 Importer of The Year. 

Just bottled with only 2700 cases made, this tiny production white blend typical does not get rated or even sent for review.
It is blend of three different grape varietals; each wine vinified separately, then aged on the lees for 3 months before bottling.
This approach intensifies the flavor and balance of the wine.

Our Thoughts.........

Fresh, clean and lively (never touches oak) with intense exotic fruit aromas.
Offering up juicy notes of white peach, gooseberry, and citrus, it’s medium-bodied, has good acidity, and a clean, balanced texture.  
Crisp, clean and zesty in the mouth, it offers delicate flavors of citrus fruit and grapefruit on a long lingering finish.

About Rubus in their words….
There are winemakers across the globe crafting delicious, fruit-driven wines. There are wineries who are using the most expensive glass, who have hired the most creative artists to design their labels, who have created the most luxurious tasting rooms. Then, there are wineries whose efforts and resources have been devoted to creating the most satisfying wine they can conceive. Fran Kysela set out to find the latter - the ones who are focused on the juice in the bottle, so that he could offer consumers a pleasurable drink at a pleasurable price. He found what he was looking for, and he calls it Rubus.

Rubus is a private label created and used by Kysela Pere et Fils, LTD in order to buy, bottle and market wine found at an incredible quality/price ratio. Over the past few years, Rubus has become an international brand, encompassing wines from various continents.
