Domaine Laguilhon

Jurançon, jurancon France

Domaine Laguilhon is owned by viticulturalist Henri Estreboou. The domaine is most likely named after a shepherds' crook (aiguillon) because it is situated on a hill where sheep passed in order to get to the fields to graze.

Domaine Laguilhon's vineyards are situated in Monein, known for creating richer styles of Jurançon. There are 12 hectares planted with Gros and Petit Manseng. The vines are south facing, which allows the grapes to shrivel and concentrates the sugars. The soil is called poudingue de Jurançon and is composed of fragments of round stones and alluvial sediment which provides excellent drainage in this wet region (1,200mm of rain per year).

All the grapes are hand-harvested and picked at optimum ripeness. The dry white is made from 50% Gros Manseng and 50% Petit Manseng. It is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and then matured on its lees for six months to give it richness on the palate. The dry Jurançon is fresh and vivacious with aromas of pears and green apples and is perfect as an aperitif or with dishes that require acidity to balance the richness. The sweet Jurançon is picked later, during the last two weeks in October, to allow the grapes to raisin on the vine, concentrating the sugars and acidity. It is also a 50/50 blend of Gros and Petit Manseng. This luscious yet balanced wine has 84g/l of residual sugar and has aromas of fresh pineapples and honey. These wines offer great value and showcase what this great wine producing region does best.
