A Quick Note on the Tense 2011 Bru-Baché, Jurançon Sec

This post is about my second experience with a wine from Jurançon and if you have never had one before then I suggest you start right away with the 2011 Domaine Bru-Baché, Jurançon Sec.  While the apple aromas and flavors are quite attractive it is the tension in the mouth that really enticed me.  The changing physical sensations made me want to repeatedly taste more.  I preferred this wine on the first two nights rather than the third when it was softer.  This wine was purchased at MacArthur Beverages.


2011 Domaine Bru-Baché, Jurançon Sec – $16
Imported by Kermit Lynch.  This wine is 100% Gros Manseng sourced from 15-70 year old vines on clay and limestone soils.  It was fermented in cuve then aged for 6 months on the lees.  Alcohol 12.5%.  The color was a medium autumnal yellow.  The nose was evocative of apple juice.  In the mouth were yellow fruit and apple flavors that had a puckering start.  There was hints of acidity before the wine became quite tart which was followed by an aftertaste of ripe fruit.  With extended air the wine calms down to have a softer approach but retains a lively kick in the finish.  The flavors are of apples with softer apple acidity.  *** Now-2016.
