Jurançon sec ‘Part Davan‘ Camin Larredya, Jean Marc Grussaute 2016/17
Camin Larredya, Jean Marc Grussaute
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.
Rich, creamy mouthfeel with broad acidity, rocky mineral flavors and notes of orchard fruits and white flowers.
Grapes: 67% Gros Manseng, 32% Petit Manseng, 1% Petit Courbu.
