The Jurançon appellation is spread throughout the Bearnaise hills south of the city of Pau. Some 500 growers cultivate approximately 1,000 hectares of vineyards which are scattered throughout the steep slopes of this bucolic countryside. The appellation’s mandate is for white wine only, though a very small amount of red wine is produced and falls under the Bearn appellation. Historically, the wines of Jurançon were “moelleux”. Dry wines are a recent development, receiving a separate AOC in 1975 and requiring the word “sec” to be on the label in conjunction with Jurançon. At present, Jurançon has approximately 100 producers of estate bottled wines.
The Grussautes have a small but remarkable vineyard situated in the Chapelle de Rousse area of Jurançon. The word “Camin” used instead of Domaine is the local dialect for chemin or road.
The majority of the vineyard, planted by Jean-Marc’s father 40 years ago, is terraced and lies on steep and curved slopes that form an amphitheater. The vineyard is planted to 60% Petit Manseng and 37% Gros Manseng and 3% Petit Courbu. Jean-Marc Grussaute began estate bottling in 1988. He has farmed organically since 2007 with the first certified vintage being 2010. Jean-Marc names his wines after the vineyard parcels from which they come.
A rich, powerful, waxy nose of yellow plum and honey introduces this biodynamic offering from Camin Larredya. Similar flavours follow on the palate, which is rich and warm. The finish offers the perfect dash of acidity to refresh the palate before your next sip. Try with a plate of cheeses or an apricot tart.
