Jurancon Marie Kattalin Domaine de Souch 500ml, Biodynamic, Gros Manseng, Petit Manseng, elegant and absolutely delicious. Made using the local varieties of Petit and Gros Manseng and some Courbu. The sweet wines of Yvonne distinguish themselves with the intensity of the acid backbone. In fact they can be drunk with almost any course savoury or sweet. The wines never cloy at all so most are produced in a standard 75 cl bottle because at 12% abv, you can very easily finish off a bottle in one sitting. If you like dessert wine, I urge you to invest in a bottle of Yvonne’s wine.
Often we site wine as unique. Souch wine genuinely is, both in the story that paved the way to their production and also in their sheer sublime quality. Jurancon Marie Kattalin is named after Yvonne’s Grand Daughter. It is aged in old oak barrels given to Yvonne by the late great, Didier Dageneau. It is has more intensity but still that freshness is breathtaking.
