Jurancon Comete Clos Larrouyat, biodynamic wine, gros manseng, camarelet, lean, textured, elegant, complex, mineral, this white wine has it all, absolutely stunning.  The area of Jurancon farmed by Maxine and Lucie Salharang is limestone terroir with an eastern exposure.  It is not great for sweet wine as the grapes only ripen enough 3 out of ten years.  For that reason Maxime produces mainly dry white wine in a region more famous for sweet wine.  He does this exceptionally well.  The Comete is the top wine and spends a little time maturing in old barrels.  Jurancon Comete is so subtle and complex at the same time.  Stylistically closer to a white Bordeaux than a Burgundy with medium body, superb fine acidity and subtle stones fruits with layers of minerals.  Very versatile but Oysters would be superb with this.

Clos Larrouyat is known for its powerful fine wines, which are made using biodynamic principles with the utmost respect for both grape and soil. Maxime Salharang began work on the 3-hectare estate in 2011 in honour of his grandfather, Roger Larrouyat, having previously learned the art of biodynamic winemaking while at Domaine de Souch. It is located on the pebbly soil of the Ossau valley. Maxime's wines are taught, precise, fresh and deep, truly exceptional examples of the Manseng varieties.
