"This rich, powerful and buttery sweetie is refined, featuring touches of elegance to its apple compote and passion fruit flavors. The long finish of mango and orange spice is pure and fresh-tasting, with plenty of nutty overtones. Drink now through 2027. 500 cases made. -KM" (2012)
"Beautiful golden brilliant colour. An expressive aroma with depth and exotic notes (fresh pineapple, mango, etc.) and white truffle, as well as a touch of vanilla. The same is found in the mouth aroma, where the balance between the sugar and acidity makes this sweet wine airy and fresh."
"Wine associated with the birth of good King Henri IV, this sweet white from the Jurancon AOC is rendered golden by the Foehn effect (dry hot wind blowing from Spain), and consists of a blend of Petit Manseng and Gros Manseng grapes. Lively, elegant, fresh, airy. Its aromas are exotic with confited notes. Rich and with good aging potential, it can be enjoyed young owing to its freshness. With time, there will appear notes of honey, white
truffle and a touch of walnut." - Winery
"85% Petit Manseng - 15% Gros Manseng, hand harvest. As for the terroir, the selected spots are Pyrenean Piedmont slopes, with amphitheatre-like terraces facing South. In this blend, the grapes come from high-altitude vineyards lying over the Jurancon AOC's two main kinds of land: - the Monein, warm and early, producing full, rich wines; - the Chapelle de Rousse, cooler and later, with livelier wines."
"Successive hand-sorting extends from late October to mid-December. Part of the harvest then undergoes skin contact maceration. Slow, gentle pressing means pure juices and expressive aromas. Controlled-temperature fermentation in thermo-regulated tanks, and for a part in barrels. No malolactic fermentation. Stirring of fine lees (a part in barrel as well) during aging. Bottling after 18 months of aging."
"The Climate : Oceanic, cool and moist during the growing season. However, autumn is often dry and hot, thanks to Southern winds (called the Foehn effect). The grapes are concentrated through drying on the vine, without rot. Harvested very late, the cold means these vine-dried grapes are preserved extremely well." - Winery
"Food & wine combinations: Owing to its freshness, this sweet wine goes marvellously well as an aperitif and at the beginning of meals, as well as with a series of French cuisine dishes including: foie gras, chicken with
pineapple, curry,roast chicken, cheeses (Pyrenees ewe-milk cheese, Cantal, Roquefort), desserts and fresh fruit tarts, crepes, etc." - Winery
