Jurançon Sec, Domaine Castéra 2021
There are a lot of wines France is famous for- they make the world’s most renowned iterations of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, sparkling wine, etc. That makes it an essential country to study for any aspiring wine professionals and a point of comparison for winemakers the world over. But what makes it really fascinating to us is the sheer diversity of style and the long and honored traditions of wine in places most wine consumers have never heard of. Jurançon in the foothills of the Pyrénees is one such place. They make both dry and sweet wines of idiosyncratic personalities, mostly from Gros Manseng and Petit Manseng, both of which have extremely high levels of natural acidity, keeping the sweet wines balanced and the dry wines fresh.
