Vineyards & Viticulture
Vines grown on a 7-acre vineyard with Southeast exposure.
Clay, with chalk and flint, covered in gravel and stony deposits washed down from the Pyrenees
Harvest & Vinification
The vineyards are manually harvested in separate passes over the course of the dry Béarnaise harvest. The grapes are immediately pressed in a pneumatic press, avoiding skin contact. The Jurançon Sec takes up to 20 days to ferment to dryness. Aged in barrel for 10 months (5-10% new) before diatomaceous earth filtration and bottling.
