Cami Salié - Jurançon sec


Profil :

This wine comes from the Jurançon Sec AOP region, a blend of Petit Manseng and Gros Manseng grapes. Produced on the appellation's two main terroirs of amphitheatre-like terraces facing the Pyrénées, it is both fresh and full. There are notes of vanilla, white peach and citrus fruits, which linger long on the palate. A real great wine, this white is at its best served pdf_iconchilled. It ages very well, revealing notes of fresh walnut, white truffle and silex.

Viticulture :
Grape varieties : 65 % Petit Manseng – 35 % Gros Manseng, hand harvest
Terroir : The selected spots are Pyrenean Piedmont slopes, with amphitheatre-like terraces facing South. In this blend, the grapes come from high-altitude vineyards lying over the Jurançon AOC’s two main kinds of land: - Monein, warm and early, producing full, rich wines - Chapelle de Rousse, cooler and later, with livelier wines To the North of the appellation lies a strip edged with plantain trees, via which Salies de Béarn salt was transported to Pau. This salt route is known here as “Cami Salié”.
Climate : Oceanic, cool and moist during the growing season. However, autumn is often dry and hot, thanks to Southern winds (called the Foehn effect). The grapes then start to be dried on the vine.

Vinification and aging :
Hand harvesting throughout October. The entire harvest then undergoes skin contact maceration. Slow, gentle pressing means pure juices and expressive aromas. Controlled-temperature fermentation, in thermoregulated tanks, and for a part in barrels. No malolactic fermentation. Stirring of fine lees during aging. Bottling after 10 months of aging.

Tasting :
Intense colour with golden tints. Expressive aroma with depth; notes of vanilla, white peach, citrus fruits. The same are found in the mouth aroma, where the freshness emphasizes a few very slightly confited notes. Nice and long, with nervousness and fullness.

Serving, food & wine combinations :

  • Ideal temperature: 12°C
  • Aging potential: 8 years
  • Food & wine combinations: A true fine wine, this dry white combines well with several French cuisine dishes, including: smoked fish, lobster, shrimp, hake, sea bream, fishes in sauce, escargots, prawns, sauerkraut, rib of veal à la crème, cheese fondue, bleu des Causses cheese, matured goat cheese, etc.
