The opinion of the sommelierThis wine is exceptional and its appellation is rare. Its originality comes from its terroir : this appellation shares the hills of the appellation of Madiran and the grapes of Jurançon. This wine is really delicious with freshness and suave aromas of apricots and honey.
TerroirThis cuvee comes from vineyards planted on a soil composed of clay and limestone. This type of soil gives to wines a lot of freshness and powerful aromas. Located on gentle slopes, the exposure of the vineyards to the sun is quite exceptional and is responsible for the well development of the grapes.
Grape varietyGros Manseng is the dominant grape in this wine. On this specific soil it gives aromas of yellow fruits to this cuvee such as apricot or pear. The presence of Petit Manseng provides aromas of citrus which give freshness to the wine.
VintageThe South-West region was drastically impacted by the spring frost in 2017, except for the most southern appellations such as Pacherenc-Du-Vic-Bilh. Moreover the vineyards suffered of a hot summer but hopefully this was balanced by the freshness and acidity provided by the terroir. Finally this is a successful year for white wines in this appellation.
