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!

Madiran are medium to full-bodied red wines mostly made of Tannat, a local grape providing structure and tannins. This bottle boasts nice fruity flavours (black cherry, fresh strawberry and cassis) and a solid structure. Sweet spices and mint add some complexity on the long, tannic finish. Classic Madiran.

If we had to pick a favourite for this week, "Renaissance" could well be the one. It exhibits superb and complex flavours of cherry, strawberry, grilled nuts and mint. Cedar notes and some spices appear on the palate, with soft tannins well integrated into the wine. We absolutely loved this surprisingly long finish. This bottle only shows how treasures...

Domaine Mouréou is owned by Patrick Ducournau, one of the most influential winemaker in the South-West, and managed by the Laplace familly from Château d'Aydie. This upmarket cuvée - yet very affordable - had a meaningful impact on his reputation. It exhibits a very intense nose of concentrated, ripe red and black fruit. Palate is round and full, finish...

A South-West selection would not be complete with the emblematic Cahors appellation, where the Malbec grape is at its best. Château Ponzac is a typical Cahors with a powerful structure and generous flavours of black fruit and cedar wood. Notes of mint and liquorice on the finish refresh this yummy, full-bodied red.

This dry white Gaillac is less fresh than the dry Jurançon but offering more fruit and flowers on the palate. Multiple flavours of peach, pear and pineapple with a touch of vanilla on the finish. 10% of the wine is aged in oak barrel to develop its structure and add complexity. A nice opportunity to discover what a solid white Gaillac can show.

This South-West offer is of course the opportunity to suggest a sweet Jurançon - the most iconic appellation for sweet wines in the region. Boasting a beautiful nose of passion fruit, grapefruit and lime, it is surprisingly fresh for a sweet wine. If you like Sauternes flavours but tend to find these wines too sweet, give a try to this superb Jurançon. *...

Domaine Rotier produces beautiful wines in Gaillac, starting with this easy-drinking red. Superb aromas of fresh black cherry, blackcurrant, sweet spices and cinnamon. Nice long finish with a hint of liquorice: this wine shows a great personality while remaining fresh and balanced. Much less tannic than Madiran, Gaillac offers a great alternative to...
