The opinion of the sommelierThis Comté Tolosan is incredibly bright ! Plunge your nose in the glass and discover this delicate fragrance of acacia and honey. Can you feel it ? When the wine met my palate, the result matched my expectations : balanced, ample and concentrated, giving the wine a beautiful aromatic persistence on the fnish. There are aromas of brioche and butter, and intermingled with notes of honey, I felt back in my lovely childhood days !
TerroirThe vineyard covers 30 hectares of vines, planted on the slopes of Aurions-Idernes on soils made of clay and silica. The siliceous soils, made up of crystalline rocks, enable the finesse and give the wines subtle ﬂoral notes (here aromas of acacia). Clay soils oﬀer harder, firmer and more alcoholic wines, giving the character of the finish on this wine.
Grape varietyCourbu, not to be confused with petit courbu, is an unknown variety only found in a few Pyrenean vineyards that is mainly grown on the appellations of Jurançon and Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh. With low yield, this grape variety is often assembled with little manseng, which brings finesse and minerality.
VintageA vintage saved by what we call Indian summer. If the ﬂowering went well in June, the months of July and especially August were quite disappointing. Te rainfalls, enemies of the grape that must ripen to give good wine, were frequent... Fortunately, the temperatures were clearly warm at the end of August, which gave the grapes a good level of ripeness.
