Larredya Jurancon Sec "Part Davant" 2017

The Grussautes have a small but remarkable vineyard situated in the Chapelle de Rousse area of Juran�on. The word "Camin" used instead of Domaine is the local dialect for chemin or road. The majority of the vineyard, planted by Jean-Marc's father 40 years ago, is terraced and lies on steep and curved slopes that form an amphitheater. The vineyard is planted to 60% Petit Manseng and 37% Gros Manseng and 3% Petit Courbu. Jean-Marc Grussaute began estate bottling in 1988. He has farmed organically since 2007 with the first certified vintage being 2010. Jean-Marc names his wines after the vineyard parcels from which they come. "La Part Davan", Juran�on Sec blends two thirds Gros Manseng with Petit Manseng and a small quantity of Petit Courbu.. The wine undergoes a "maceration pellicullaire" before fermentation in stainless steel tanks and foudres. The wine then is kept "sur lie" for at least six months. Blending and bottling are done in the late spring.
