Vinous Reverie Notes
Between Biarritz and Lourdes, facing the Pyrénées at the heart of Bearn, Henri Ramonteu creates dry and sweet white wines from an exceptional terroir. Wines of Jurançon with their fruity, complex aromas and elegant golden color, willenchant lovers of fine, signature wines. Henri’s philosophie is as such: “Details are what create perfection, but perfection itself is never a detail”. Vineyard: The vineyard covers 104 acres of clay dominant terroir (Clay-silica). Vines are planted on the steep hillsides with a South, South-East exposure and differing altitude between the plots (400m for the highest).Vines benefit of optimum climatic conditions. Tasting notes: This wine is intense on the nose with aromas of exotic fruit and citrus, laced with hints of oak. Flacors of ripe pineapple, quince and toasted chestnut. The mouth is full and round, with a sweet lingering finish. Food pairing: Perfect with most cheeses and desserts. The most famous pairing is with a foie gras mi-cuit.
