Jurancon, Ballet d'Octobre, Domaine de Cauhape, France 2009
Been celebrating this week and finished off a
gorgeous midweek meal in Star Anise with a glass of this lovely wine from the Basque
My first experience of
Jurancon was the very good dry white from the area and that is what I thought I
was getting when, in a rush to stock a Dordogne gite, I put my hand into a
carton marked Jurancon on the floor of a Lidl in Sarlat and pulled out a bottle.
It was only when unpacking
at the gite that I noticed the deeper colour. But no problem. It is a lovely
medium sweet (moelluex) wine and quite versatile. It may be used as an
aperitif, with some patés and foie gras and with certain cheeses and
fruits desserts. And why not have a glass after the meal as we did in Star
Anise. Certainly, worth a look and an ideal first step into the world of
dessert wines. Very Highly Recommended.
