One of our most popular white wines is back in stock: Le Havre de Paix Cotes de Gascogne!

In December, our French container finally arrived in time with much needed champagne for New Year’s Eve celebrations. Also in that container was this easy drinking French white wine.

Havre de Paix is perfectly crisp and refreshing. But owing to its home in the sunny Southwest of France, it’s also supremely ripe and generous. It has the kind of plump melon fruit that will keep your glass disappearing quickly. So much so that you might consider buying more than one. And it’s here, once again, that Randall’s has you covered. When you buy one bottle of Havre de Paix for $11.99, we’ll sell you a second bottle for just a nickel!

If you’re not familiar, Cotes de Gascogne hails from the same region in Southwest France that produces Armagnac. (And if you’re not familiar with Armagnac, the South’s answer to Cognac, you’re really missing out. But we’ll talk about that later.) This is one of the few places in the Southwest where white wine is king, and wines labeled Cotes de Gascogne will often contain the same Ugni Blanc and Colombard grapes used in the production of Armagnac. But several other varieties are allowed as well, including Sauvignon Blanc, the grape that gives our Havre de Paix most of its aromatic character. Don’t sweat it though, if you’re not typically a fan of grassy, grapefruity Sauvignon Blanc – this isn’t like that. The blend, along with the climate, make Havre de Paix a different beast altogether.

The name Havre de Paix translates roughly as “peaceful refuge” or “safe haven.” It sounds positively serene, but I’d argue it does a lousy job representing the juice in the bottle.

Good Cotes de Gascogne is almost always an incredible value, but it’s even more inexpensive as one of our Randall’s Direct wines. By bringing the wine directly from France, we cut out two layers of markup. In the end, we’re able to offer you not one, but two bottles of summertime fun for just $12.04! If you don’t find that impressive, it probably means you haven’t tasted this stuff yet. And that’s a problem you can easily fix by stopping in at any of our Missouri stores, or by ordering online at ShopRandalls.com.
