Jurançon is located in the foothills of the Pyrenees about 40km from the Spanish border and enjoys a large diurnal range (this is the difference between the highest daytime temperatures and the lowest temperatures experienced at night). This is moderated by the winds coming in off the Atlantic. Winemaker Jean-Bernard is the 3rd generation of his family to run the estate which was set up by his grandfather in 1920. His operation was certified Organic in 2005, and he practices a range of Biodynamic winemaking methods. He and his father also still practice ‘polyculture’ with their vines growing side-by-side with other plants such as fruit trees and strawberry fields. They are also known to graze cattle on the estate.

100% Gros Manseng, the grapes for this wine are hand- harvested from extremely steep slopes. These slopes are also south-facing, so have the best exposure to sunlight, therefore the grapes are perfectly ripe when harvested. The resulting wine has an intense nose of citrus fruits, white fleshed fruits such as peach, and hints of green hazelnut. The palate is crisp with a lot of freshness, fruitiness, a touch of spice and honey, and a great minerality on the finish.

This ripe and slightly rich white pairs well with curried monkfish, warm goat’s cheese salads, platters of charcuterie.
