Domaine de Pouy 2001 Vin de Pays des Côtes de Gascogne ($6.99)
This clear, straw-color wine offers distinct pear and apple aromas, fresh and appetizing. Bone-dry and very fresh, pears and snappy acidity provide a simple but refreshing flavor that makes it a natural with a wide range of foods. US Importer: Robert Kacher, Washington, D.C. (Jan 1, 2003)

FOOD MATCH: Crisp acid and fruit made a happy marriage with an Italian-style frittata.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
