Jurançon 'La Magendia', Clos Lapeyre, South West, France 2018
Regular price £30.20
The family farm was traditionally dedicated to mixed farming with various small fruits and grapes taken to the cave cooperative. From 1985, the estate turned exclusively to grape-growing and this is when the Clos Lapeyre was born.
In 2000, the vineyard spread over 10 hectares. In 2004, it grew bigger with the taking-over of the Nays-Labassère estate, a magnificent and old vineyard of 7 hectares in the heart of Chapelle-de-Rousse.
Jurançon 'La Magendia' 2018
100% Petit Manseng, fermented in new oak barrels. Nuances of exotic fruits (pineapple, mango, passion fruit). Powerful, yet controlled toast and vanilla flavours, with a hint of additional wood spice. Plenty of fat on the palate is accented by a citrus note on the finish which helps lift the fruit to new levels. Rich and delicious, with fine length.
