Jurançon Blanc Sec "Fantaisie" 2014 - Château de Jurque


We instantly fell in love with this dry white wine from Jurançon. It exhibits a profound and complex nose (yellow fruit, grapefruit, apricot, papaya), reminiscent of upmarket whites from Pessac-Léognan. Palate is perfectly balanced with an unexpected - and superb - acidity enhanced by citrus flavours. As a result, this is a highly vibrant and fresh wine - and quite original, as Jurançon is rather well known for sweet wines. Give it a try; at this price you cannot go wrong!

What experts say  
DWWA%202015%20Commended.jpg

Commended at Decanter World Wine Awards 2015 "Creamy aromas and a complex, vivid palate with the incisive acidity of a good Jurançon."

  

1* Very well-made wine "The cuvée Fantaisie shows an intense nose of peach, apricot, Spanish melon, flowers and brioche. Round and aromatic, this wine is made of freshness." (Previous vintage)
