About the Wine
Farmed biodynamically, the wine is a blend of Gros and Petit Manseng with a touch of Courbu for balance. While often an under-appreciated AOC winemaker, Jean-Marc, is focussed on celebrating both the region, and its unsung grapes.
Whole-bunch pressed with a little bit of skin-contact for the Mansengs to bring aromatics and structure. The Courbu gets harvested a few weeks later, and its addition helps to trigger fermentation for the Manseng.
The nose is layered and subtle orange blossoms, lemon verbena and star fruit. In the palate, everything is in place, with an unctuous feel, yet it has an amazing backbone of acidity leaving the palate fresh and clean.
About Domaine Camin Larredya
With 9 hectares of certified organic vineyards on a hill in the Jurancon region, Jean-Marc and his mum run Domaine Camin Larredya together.
The Domaine has been family owned and run since the 1900's, and the majority of the current vines were planted in the 1970's by Jean-Marc's father. They love to showcase the unsung varieties of the region, growing nothing but Petit Manseng, Gros Manseng, Petit Courbu and Camaralet.
The wine is crafted with precision and attention to detail, with Jean-Marc going back to the roots of winemaking in the region and allowing the grapes to tell their story - one wine at a time
