The Floc de Gascogne is a regional apéritif from the Côtes de Gascogne and Armagnac regions of Sud-Ouest wine region of France. It has had Appellation d'origine contrôlée status since 1990.
Floc de Gascogne is a mistelle, a vin de liqueur (a fortified sweet wine) made of 1/3 of armagnac and 2/3 of fresh grape juice (Colombard grape for this particular producer) both from the wine area Armagnac / Côtes de Gascogne. Both of these must be produced by the same vineyard.
The Floc de Gascogne - "flower of Gascony" - is made with fresh Colombard juice that is mated with Armagnac, which naturally allows to block the fermentation of fresh juice.
The wine presents a beautiful bright pale yellow color and reveals a powerful and complex nose of floral notes. The mouth is generous, round and unctuous displaying savory flavors of fruit, almond and honey.
