DOMAINE DES CASSAGNOLES

Known for its great value, Gascogny, in the hands of a really good winemaker like Gilles Baumann, can also make excellent wines in their own right, disregarding the bargain price. The cuvee I select tends to be approximately 40 to 50% Colombard, 25-30% Ugni Blanc and the balance, 20-25% Gros Manseng. Baumann’s Cassagnoles is a consistent Medaille D’Or winner in Eauze (the local competition) and Paris, as well as three star and Coup de Coeur in Guide Hachette, and is entirely estate grown and bottled. - Peter Weygandt

Gilles Baumann’s Domaine Cassagnoles was not among the many Gascogne whites competing when that category was hot back in the mid-to-late 1980s, but over the past decade, his have proven to be some of the most consistently ripe and satisfying - as well as least expensive - of their genre.
