Jurancon’s late wine festival

Jurancon _ Chateau Jolys

Jurancon _ Chateau Jolys

Late in the year Jurançon (64 Pyrenees-Atlantiques, Nouvelle Aquitaine), the white wine appellation in the foothills of the Pyrenées celebrates with an Open Doors (Portes Ouvertes) Sunday 9 December 2018 on the Jurançon wine route (La Route des Vins du Jurançon)

Jurancon posterIn previous years up to 40 vignerons have opened their doors to visitors with their local colleagues – craftsmen, farmers and artists. In the evening there will be jazz and music concerts!

Jurançon produces both sweet and dry white wines – the whole range from steely dry Jurancon Sec to late harvest dessert Jurancon. Make sure that you check whether you are buying sweet or dry – I think these are fabulous wines – preferred producers include Domaine Cauhapé at Monein and  Domaine de Cinquau at Artigelouve, both to the west of Pau. The Jurançon co-operative cellars are at La Cave de Gan
