Jurançon Vendanges Tardives 2011
Clos Guirouilh’s Vendanges Tardives is made from a blend of 70% Petit Manseng and 30% Gros Manseng grown in clay-calcareous soils that feature some marl intrusions and small sandstone rocks. The vines are between 25 and 60 years old. The grapes were manually harvested between November 10 and mid-December. Only the most withered grapes were selected to ensure the requisite minimum richness of 16.5% potential alcohol to be labeled as Vendanges Tardives.
Vinification The wine was slowly fermented with indigenous yeasts over the course of four to five months in new and 1-year-old barrels. It was then aged for 22 months in the same barrels. 98 g/L residual sugar.
