2001 Domaine Cauhape Jurancons

Had my first snort of the highly touted 2001 French stickies last night, with a pot full of foie gras from Alsace. Cauhape has produced an October-picked bottling (8.75 Euro a half-bottle in Paris), as well as a thicker, sweeter November bottling for 28 Euro/750ml. A Quintessence from grapes picked in January is due to be released soon. The first two are off all measurable quality/price ratio charts! Do not miss them.

I have been using the Jurançon Moelleux "Ballet d'Octobre" for several years now as a by the glass selection. Even jaded wine snobs perk up for these wines. The 2001 Jurançon Sec is also a stunner. Very focused with sweet citrus tones in the bouquet and on the tongue. These should retail at $25 or under.
