History Colombard is a variety of white French wine grapes that is the offspring of Gouais blanc and Chenin blanc. This makes the grapes the brother of Armagnac Meslier Saint François and the almost extinct Cognac Balzac blanc grape.
Features wine A fruity white wine is obtained, both dry and sweet.
Notes Colombart is a traditionally cultivated white berry to obtain a sour and thin wine to distill out by producing Cognac and Armagnac. It is one of the most widely cultivated vines in California as well as in Australia and South Africa. In South West France it is also turned into a light, soft and fruity table wine, not expensive and destined to be drunk right away. In California, it is usually mixed with Chenin Blanc to make moderately dry and fruity caraway wines. Despite its origins, Colombard grape wines are young to drink and may begin to deplete after 3 or 4 years from bottling.
