From Jurançon, Gascony, Southwest France. Jurançon is known for both its dry and sweet wines, with Gros Manseng typically used for the former and Petit Manseng for the latter. Clos Lapeyre is the leader of the region, producing sapid, soulful wines highly expressive of their terroir. Imagine a hypothetical blend of Sauvignon Blanc (without the grassiness) and Chenin Blanc (minus the wet wool): pale gold color; dried apricot, peach, and acacia on the nose. Terrific minerality in the mouth.
