Jurancon is the closest thing France has to the Shire. The Pyrenees cut a pretty line across the southern horizon, the hills roll and bump softly into one another, and narrow country lanes wander through field, forest, and vineyard between beautiful old stone-built towns perched over rushing streams and rivers. Is it any wonder that the wines from this corner of southwest France feel so powerfully distinct, unlike any other wines of France, at once forgotten in the shadow of Bordeaux and preserved in amber for us to re-discover. In terms of sheer quality, these unobtrusive hills produce the finest white wines of France this side of the Loire, and the soulful Gros and Petit Manseng grapes are packed to the gills with personality. Domaine Nigri is the latest example to arrive in Oregon, and it’s another stunner. Their Pierre de Lune bottling offers a nose of grilled apricot, yellow apples, honeycomb, scotch broom, tangerine, rosemary, tarragon, savory, and a dash of hard Basque cheese. Like the most classic Jurancons, the Nigri is lush textured, creamy yet blazing bright with acidity. The base flavor of apricot comes with orange oil, preserved pears, smoky soil, bee pollen and a hint of vanilla that lingers cheerfully on the finish. Duck is certainly the most traditional food pairing, but we can see this wine next to Moroccan tagine with harissa spice.
