Chateau Jolys, Jurancon Sec, 2011 Best Import SMH 12/6/13

We were thrilled to see this review of Chateau Jolys Jurancon Sec 2011, from Huon Hooke.  Huon reviewed the wine in his Corkscore Newsletter and in the Sydney Morning Herald on Tuesday 12 June 2013.

He awarded it 92 points and "best import" status. 


Best import

Chateau Jolys Jurancon Sec, France 2011 $27.75
The colour is medium to full yellow and the bouquet evokes citrus blossom, honeysuckle and many other appealing fragrances. The palate is delicate, seamless and gently fruity, with a trace of sweetness early, then a clean, dry finish, with balanced acidity. It’s a lovely wine but drink it soon because the synthetic stopper is not designed for cellaring. 13 per cent alcohol. 92/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)
Food: pre-dinner nibbles

This review is for the 2011 Vintage.  Contact DiscoverVin if interested in purchasing.
The 2010 vintage is  still drinking well and is available online for $24.90.

The 2011  is the third vintage of this wine that DiscoverVin
have stocked, and it has become our best selling white wine,
 much loved by consumers.

Made from indigenous varieties Petit Manseng (50%) and Gros Manseng (50%). Andrea Frost in the Melbourne Review said recently " Jurançon Sec is a dry white wine style from South West France that sits somewhere between the excited shrill of a Sauvignon Blanc and the luscious complexity of a worked Chardonnay. "

Internationally, demand for this particular wine has been outstripping supply, but late last year we secured stock of this vintage.

Pleasingly we have also received an allocation of the next vintage (2012), which won the regional trophy for south-west France at the Decanter world wine awards. We are confident that for the next 2 years at least,  DiscoverVin will have a consisitently high quality good value product to supply.

This is a fantastically priced authentic wine from an independent producer in one of the worlds oldest wine regions.
