Such a joy to drink at the end of a meal, or the beginning too with liver pate on toast and fruit jelly. When good, sweet Jurancon offers the most fabulous style of wine, and great value, and this is one of the best - beautifully balanced, with its fabulous aromas and flavours of honey drizzled baked apricots, white flowers, gentle spice and exotic fruit. It's got an amazing backbone of acidity that stops it from being cloying and makes it oh-so-drinkable.
Frank Lihour is a young, fifth generation winemaker from Monein, who has lit a fire under this sleepy region with wines that sing with Jurancon purity and terroir. Franck has made wines for over 10 years around the world (including, it turns out, at our friends at Beaumont winery in South Africa) where he picked up many ideas to improve the quality of wine back home. He gingerly introduced them to his father, and now has taken over full throttle, and wow, these wines are superb!
