Gros Manseng, Petit Manseng * 75cl * 13% ABV * Jurancon, South West France
The Montesquiou family have been a source of quality Jurancon wines for generations. Today the estate is run by brothers Sebastien and Fabrice who follow biodynamic practices, using minimal intervention in the winemaking process. This dry wine is incredibly complex combining the body and concentration of great Chardonnay with the aromatic lightness of Albarino. An aromatic nose of pineapple, lime and white peach, which follows through onto the palate. Its sea salt, mineral background keeps things fresh and moreish.
