A very fruity flavour with hints of peaches. I highly recommend

Our big favourite! This wine is an essential one from the South West!
Sweet but abounding in delicacy, this wine possesses remarkable balance between sugar and lovely acidity. The notes of yellow fruits, peach in syrup and pineapple will seduce you from apéritifs to dessert. You'll soon be addicted!! Keep it handy!

Always excellent quality to price ratio, with just the right hint of sweetness, to be drunk chilled. Third order for Vinatis and certainly not the last! I'd definitely recommend it.

A must for your cellar. Slightly sweet. Ideal as an aperitif or with dessert. Same family (for me but not an expert?) Uby 4, Tariquet.

This wine is the perfect accompaniment to aperitifs with friends, and will appeal to women. For those who like their wines sweet but not too sweet, its exotic fruit notes are a plus. Very happy with my purchase

This Cuvée 2023 is and remains a benchmark for the house. The sugar/acidity ratio is always perfectly controlled, with notes of yellow fruit, peach and pineapple on the palate.
Bal des papillons is always on hand as an aperitif at family gatherings!

A superb balance for this fresh, gourmet cuvée. Grapefruit and fresh pineapple on the nose. The palate is gourmet with yellow and exotic fruits. The salivating finish invites the next glass.

After an initial tasting with a friend, I was convinced by this wine following my latest order. A pure delight, enjoyed as an aperitif with a small duck breast.

A new discovery of this south-western wine, after UBI 4.
Fresh on the palate, with a light grapefruit aroma and a very pleasant smoothness and roundness, it is ideal with white meats and other dishes.

Every year it is always good, pleasant in its sweetness and exotic, fresh fruit flavours. Ideal as an aperitif, but try it with a dry cake in the afternoon, even more ideal

This light golden appetiser is reminiscent of late harvest and mosel wines, but has a more vibrant aroma of ripe mango, red peaches and floral nuances. On the palate, it reveals a sweetness balanced with a refreshing acidity that takes us back to sunny spring days.

A good discovery, this Gascogne is immediately recognisable from the first sip. Soft, a little sweet with citrus notes. Perfect as an aperitif or simply to enjoy with friends.

Horgelus never fails, and with this wine he scores another bull's-eye. On the nose it is a delight of fruit scents and in the mouth it flows along like a pleasure. I will always keep a couple in my cellar.

A wine I've been following for some time now.
A sweet wine, not sweet, with a taste of ripe fruit. I classify it as excellent, my daughters have fallen for it, and the family is unanimous.
A fair price, especially on special offer.
A nugget without usurpation.

Year after year, it remains as excellent as ever. Fruity, slightly sweet. It appeals to all women who like this type of wine, and even to men. We drink it very chilled in both summer and winter.

I'm a great fan of Domaine Horgelus wines. I ordered this one to accompany foie gras with richness, and it goes perfectly with it. Since then, we've enjoyed it as an aperitif and we've appreciated its fruity, slightly sweet character. But it's still fresh and really pleasant.

Comparing several white wines, certain types of white wine stand out. This type of wine gives a different view of its fruity character.

The pleasure wine par excellence. Whatever the occasion, it's sure to please. The balance between sugar and acidity is as impeccable as ever, with a slightly less open attack in this 2023, more pineapple than grapefruit. The benchmark tangy sweet.

Butterflies are my friends. My darling's most loyal. As for me, I'm not much of a sweet wine drinker, but I'm nevertheless seduced by the joyful tenderness of this wine, which can be enjoyed both as an aperitif and with a meal. I approve!

We thoroughly enjoyed this wine as an aperitif and also with dessert. It also pleased our friends and family. Very satisfied and this wine really meets our expectations.

HORGELUS

On the sunny slopes of Gascony, in the heart of the South-West, Horgelus continues to seduce with its pleasure wines accessible to the greatest number of people, taking the greatest care to preserve the aromas in the wines, and limiting at most all forms of oxidation of musts and wines, the result is fruity and the freshness of the wines is enchanting. Here is an area that has not finished talking about it!
