Le Petit Manseng

Petit Manseng is related to Gros Manseng, but has smaller, thicker-skinned berries. It is able to develop a high sugar content while retaining a high acidity, necessary for the balance of the best sweet and syrupy wines. Generally harvested in November, its naturally low yields are concentrated by partial dehydration of the grapes on the vine stock. Alone or blended with Gros Manseng, Arrufiac or Courbu, Petit Manseng raises Jurançon and Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh to the rank of the most distinctive sweet wines in the world.
