Super delicate! I served this with a lemon tart and the dish blew the wine away. It’s a shame. The wine’s gorgeous. Domaine Cauhape always manages to capture the cool, delicate intensity of Jurancon with a lovely volume of fruit. Honey beeswax, lemon and lime with the most precise, tensioned acid cut. Not chiseled, rather, persistent and pervasive. The silky texture is insistent. A half bottle won’t do it! Serve with custard based fruit desserts. Waters Wine, June 2019
70% Gros Manseng, 30% Petit Manseng, crushed and destemmed then macerated on skins for 12 hours before pressing. Cool-fermented in stainless steel and matured on lees for 8 months. 13% Alc/Vol; 63g/l RS. This wine has a fresh vibrant and exotic nose with citrus fruits, hints of tropical fruit and a spicy gingerbread accent. A lovely silky palate and impeccable sweet/acid balance on the long, succulent and persistent finish.
