Tasting Floc de Gascogne:
an experience for unique sensations

The Floc de Gascogne tasting experience requires 3 senses: sight , smell and taste .

The smell

In a glass which must be transparent you will be able to appreciate the colors of Floc de Gascogne.

The white Floc de Gascogne
Its color follows a fan which goes from pale yellow, to light yellow, golden yellow to finish towards orange-yellow.
In this variety of color you can look for the dominant grape varieties. If the winemaker has chosen to highlight Ugni Blanc in his mash, the Floc de Gascogne will be light, conversely if it is the Gros Manseng which is dominant, the Floc de Gascogne will be golden to orange. Beyond that, if the yellow tends towards brown, the Floc de Gascogne has aged and the tasting experience will no longer be satisfactory.

The red Floc de Gascogne
Its color can start from a purple, then go towards red, orange-red and finish towards a dark red.
Here too if the red tends towards brown, the tasting experience will not be optimal because the product is too old.
The color depends more on the maceration time and the bleeding of the fruits than on the grape variety.

Take a deep breath into the glass to capture all the olfactory power of Floc de Gascogne. Stir the glass a little and start again.

White Floc de Gascogne
On the nose, you can find aromas of violets, honey, citrus and pear.

Red Floc de Gascogne

Once in the mouth, the fresh Floc de Gascogne confirms the aromas smelled through the nose.

Beyond these aromas, try to identify the flavors that reach your mouth: roundness, sweetness, acidity, freshness...
