2010 Domaine Cauhapé 'Quintessence du Petit Manseng' Jurançon

$179.95

Dessert wine fans, d’Yquem fans, you owe it to yourself to become acquainted with the very best from Jurançon [jhur-AN-sawn]. Petit Manseng is the grape here, and the sweet wines it gives have a palate impact like a comet: A broad, sweet attack and a tart, dominating whip of a rancio-laden finish. You’ve got to taste it to believe it. Decanter flipped for this wine’s “Tropical pineapple, truffles, hint of coffee aromas; intensely sweet, balanced with energetic acidity, rich and complex quince, citrus and spicy nutmeg—on the palate a rich waxy texture, deep, creamy and almost fiery. Harmonious, complete, riveting.
