Cave de Gan cuvée Océane 2022 (AOC Jurançon)

The Gros Manseng variety is native to Basque Country, there, it takes root in the clay-calcareous soils that retain the perpetual rains so well. Its late maturity invites it to be vinified in dry, moelleux or liquoreux, thus achieving excellence. The key to your success is controlling the yields, this fact will make the difference between a mediocre result or a splendid one.

Straw yellow color without defects. On the nose,exotic fruit and quince notes on a floral background seducying. In the mouth the volume (13.5% vol.) is the protagonist from the first moment. Dry, with good acidity as always in the Gros Manseng variety. Vibrant mouthfeel. White stone fruit hints joins forces with white spice to reach every cell of the palate. Very sulphurous finish, which justifies its low cost quality.

The Gros Manseng variety has spread to neighboring wine-regions such as Gascogne or Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh where it gives the wines citrus and exotic notes. La Cave de Gan offers a price of 4 euros that allows access to a mediocre but correct white. The pairing is the typical Basque pintxos found in the Donostia's taverns: try the cod, zucchini and pepper pintxo in front of Kontxa beach.
