Penombre Blanc 2020 review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips


This southern French white made in the Languedoc is buttery mix of pear and melon fruitiness with apple and almond to follow. The taste is made fresh with a lemoniness. A nice wine made from a blend of five different grape varieties: Grenache Blanc, Terret Bourret (also know as Terret Gris with its grey pink colour), Vermentino (also known as Rolle and used in the Kylie Minogue Cotes de Provence rose), plus Roussanne and Marsanne which always seem to be added together like twins. The result is a wine that would be good for almost any occasion.
