Côtes de Thongue, Domaine Les Filles de Septembre
5 litre Bag in Box Côtes de Thongue Blanc, Domaine Les Filles de Septembre - 14.50€
I have to admit that I do not often drink wine out of a BIB, but that is what I found myself doing the other day, and it was surprisingly good, in the context of an undemanding easy to drink white wine.
It is always good to be taken outside one’s comfort zone.
The box gave no clue as to grape variety, but an email told me that it is a blend of 60% Sauvignon and 40% Chardonnay. The nose was quite soft and the palate nicely rounded, with no hard edges or unwelcome acidity. It was dangerously drinkable and all for 15€!
...And the rather poetic name of the estate is something to do with all the daughters being born in September, at harvest time!
