Jurançon is the jewel of southwest France, a bucolic paradise of rolling green hills, winding roads, and medieval towns built along the banks of cheerful rushing streams. This area is home to two of France’s greatest white grape varieties. Gros Manseng and Petit Manseng. Despite the similar name, they’re unrelated, yet they work together to make simply stunning white wines with complex flavor and incredible textural tension. Domaine Castéra, under the direction of fourth generation winemaker Frank Lihour, has become one of the great estates of the region. He farms biodynamically and works in the cellar to yield every bit of textural and aromatic intensity available. Castéra wines are always among the most energetic in the region. This edition shows aromas of Meyer lemon, tangerine, honeydew melon, honey drizzled Mackintosh apples with a dusting of allspice. The palate starts with lemon and apple juice, a waft of lime and limestone soil notes. As bright and zesty as anyone could ask, with a leesy richness that comes from Franck’s slow and cool fermentations. Jurançon tradition demands duck, foie gras, and other pates, but this is a truly versatile wine for anyone who loves intensity in their white wines. If you enjoy this one, we encourage you to seek out the Castéra flagship single vineyard ‘Tauzy’ wine, which is everything described above and more.
