D'Audaux Petit Manseng Sec 2018
Many of you will know Jamie as one of the founders of The Sampler. He’s now off in Jurançon, along with his wife Jess,making delicious 100% Petit Manseng white wine. This is harvested from two vineyard sites, one that emphasises freshness, the other richness and power. It is foot-trodden and basket-pressed, fermented in old oak from Bordeaux and matured for nine months on the lees.
"Fermented in 3 to 5 year old barrels used for smart white Bordeaux. Firm with all the tang of Petit Manseng but awfully young. Very ambitious. Will need quite a bit of bottle age. Admirably long. Citrus and tension" 16.5/20 JancisRobinson.com
