In the price range of a house wine, this jaunty wine exudes charm. It has bright fruit of grapefruit and green apple with a bit of juicy peach and rose petals. Tangy acidity keeps your mouth watering and begging for more. It’s happy as an aperitif and delighted to accompany a chicken salad.

Domaine Guillaman is in southwestern France in Armagnac country, home of that fiery spirit made from grapes. Dominique Ferret is the sixth generation to manage the family’s estate and the first to focus on table wines instead of growing grapes for Armagnac. The change required major renovations in the winery and vineyards, but , the effort was clearly worth it.
