TASTING NOTES

Jurançon is a very small wine region located in the Pyrenees, famous for its sweet wines made with late harvested Gros Manseng and Petit Manseng grapes. The grapes are hand-harvested later in the season when the sugar levels are higher and the water content is very low. The delicate honey and herb-tinged nose is enticing, with a sweet edge. It has a lovely rich texture with notes of straw and herb on the palate and good balance with a honeyed sweetness.

This is the wine you want to open at the very beginning or the very end of dinner. It matches beautifully with all kinds of cheeses, especially goat and blue cheeses. It is also terrific as a dessert wine.
