Jurancon Sec 2014 Domaine Laguilhon

Dry, but expressive fruit of peach and ripe melon with an uplifting palatte of pears and green apples- finish of fresh acidity and lemon zest, with a slight viscosity on a lengthy finish - Gros and Petit Manseng .

Domaine Laguilhon- Jurancon, Pyrenees

Set in the lush green rolling foothills of the Pyrenees, just to the west of Pau, Jurançon is one of the most beautiful viticultural areas of France. It is always a pleasure to visit this beautiful old town with its historic Chateau overlooking the mountains which stretch into the distance – even when it is to see your rugby team succumb to the vagaries of a French provincial rugby club.

Domaine Laguilhon produces the most delightful styles of Jurançon, from the clean, racy acidity of the Sec with its lively rich palate of orange marmalade and acacia flower, to the ultra rich but refreshingly clean ‘sweet' with its layers of honeyed ripeness, luxurious white fruit and lightness of taste on an evolving palate.
