Olivier Gessler Côtes de Gascogne
This wine is a glitterbomb of glory; a fantasmagoric ebullience of affordability. It’s just so sneaky good for little money. Located in the southwest, Gascony is France’s fourth largest wine region. A large area known primarily for its white wines, it is an underrated region. Yet those white wines offer better bang for your buck than their Bordeaux neighbor. Gessler’s Côtes de Gascogne is proof of that averment. This sucker is stupid good. It bursts with satisfying, refreshing goodness. Bright, juicy and jubilant, the drink satisfyingly overperforms.
