Cuvée presentation

Icône de son appellation Jurançon, mais ne produisant que des vins d'une grande rareté, le Clos Joliette s'illustre une fois de plus avec son vin blanc sec. Il faut dire qu'il est difficile de négliger la délicatesse et la profondeur des ses aômes d'agrumes et de fruits blancs, sa tension et sa finale aux amers nobles. Un grand vin qui convaincrait tous les sceptiques de cette appellation méconnue.

Information about domain Clos Joliette

Le Clos Joliette is located in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques in the village of Jurançon itself. The single parcel of 1.85 hectares was planted in 1929 on clay-limestone soil. Yields are astonishingly low, and therefore the production of 1500 bottles isn't commercialised. And yet – or perhaps precisely for this reason – its presence is immense. Unaffected by the passing of time or commercial logic, the owners have always wanted to hide behind this unique terroir. The vines of Petit Manseng were planted in 1929. The southeast- facing parcel is exposed to the sun with a soil of “Jurançon puddingstones”: stones on the ground which increase the temperature during the day and allow rain water to drain. This micro-climate yields overripe grapes, which are left to dry on the vines. The grapes are dried by both the sun and the wind, before being picked by hand between November and December with successive selections.
