Colombard from Calvet

Published:  18 January, 2007

Calvet, best known in the UK for its Bordeaux wines, has released a Colombard from the Ctes de Gascogne under its Limited Release label.

Winemaker Benjamin Tueux was hoping to find a Sauvignon Blanc, but while exploring the region, discovered some 'exceptional' old-vine Colombard vineyards in the Gers region.

The company adds that he worked closely with the producers, selecting parcels and overseeing the winemaking.

The wine, which will retail for 4.99, will be available exclusively through Waitrose.
