This will be your new favorite dessert wine. It will change your mind about what dessert wine is and what it should be. Treat yourself, you're worth it.

Wow! Never had anything like this. Clean, pure enjoyment. There is only the idea of sweetness, with a hint of velvety citrus. Truly amazing.

Oak dominated floral and citrus fruit, nutty and sift in the pallet despite the acidity. Tons of extract as well as a healthy sweetness. But doesn't come off cloying. Very complex in mouth, vanilla, cocoa, honey, lime, peach, coffee, linden flower... And more!

No todo los días tienes la suerte de probar un vino de esta categoría, complejidad y "perfección". Sus notas cítricas, florales, frutos secos (nuez fue lo que encontré) me transportaron. Estaba disfrutando.
Y en boca siguió el crecimiento de sensaciones apareció la vainilla, algo de cacao pero las notas cítricas seguían atacándome. Me faltan palabras para describirlo

2005, This delightful dessert wine was tasted double blind and is by far the best Jurancon I had to date. The wine is made out of Petit Manseng, and is as rich and complex as some of the top desert wines out there. Jurancon is one of those AOCs that fortunately were not discovered globally yet, so wines are reasonably priced, even this masterpiece for its quality. Wine has deep golden color. Atempting nose full of flowers, honey, orange piles, dry apricot, marmalade des citron, and more, full round smooth creamy body, with lovely sweetness and excellent balancing acidity. A long delicious yummy finish! Go for it ! My score 93, drink to 2020.
