The Jurançon AOC is a famous appellation located in the southwest of France. It is renowned for its process of hand-harvesting the Petit Manseng grapes, during which successive selections are carried out to obtain «passerillés» grapes, i.e. grapes which are over-mature. These are therefore the ripest grapes, with the deepest golden hue, containing a high concentration of sugars and aromas.
100% Petit Manseng.
The alcoholic fermentation is carried out at a controlled temperature to preserve the aromas as best as possible. The wine is aged for 12-18 months, with the lees stirred up into suspension by the traditional method of «batônnage ». This helps us obtain good aromatic extraction and a wine with more fat and lovely length on the palate.
