2009 Jurançon Sec "Mantoulan" (Lapeyre, Clos)
Clos Lapeyre, Jurançon Sec, "Mantoulan", Southwest, France 2009Gros Manseng, Petit Manseg TANGELO & NECTARINE, HONEY & BRAZIL NUT, WAXY ELEGANCE Jurançon, one of France's brightest points for captivating whites, has managed to somehow remain just slightly under the radar despite producing wines that could confidently settle in beside stellar white Burgundies and the cream of the Loire Valley crop. This example from the outstanding Lapeyre estate sensually smolders with etherial floral perfume, tangy orange citrus and firm nectarine, and a waxy nuttiness which impeccably compliments the wine's palate-jumpstarting acidity. Regal, exotic, and unforgettable! Serving Suggestion: This wine would make an excellent officiator over an adventurous spread of cured ham, hors d'oeuvres, and a variety of cheeses. Mustard seed-rubbed mahi w/ ginger, turmeric, & paprika.
