Cami Salié, AOP Jurançon Sec

80% Gros Manseng, 20% Petit Manseng. From selected vineyards on the Pyrenean slopes, with south facing terraces. The high-altitude vineyards cover two main kinds of terroir, Monein, warm and early, producing full, rich wines and Chapelle de Rousse, cooler and later, with fresh wines. Harvested by hand during October. The entire harvest then undergoes a maceration followed by a slow and gentle pressing allowing pure juice and expressive aromas. Temperature controlled fermentation, mainly in thermoregulated tanks, and part in barrels. No malolactic fermentation but ageing on fine lees. Bottling after 10 months of ageing. Intense colour with golden hints. Expressive aromas with depth, notes of vanilla, white peach and citrus fruits. The same are found on the palate, where the freshness emphasises a few very slightly candied fruit notes. Long and full-bodied, a true gastronomic wine.
