Mantoulan is the name of a little locality at 500 m in the West side of Clos Lapeyre. It is a famous old “terroir” that we replanted in high density with traditional grape varieties from Jurançon which were field selected in other quality vineyards : Petit Manseng, Courbu, and Camaralet.
2006 is the first vintage for this top-of-the-range dry JURANÇON SEC. It is a blend of 70% Petit Manseng, Courbu and Camaralet grapes. This wine has been vinified and aged for 18 months in young barrels after the malolactic fermentation.Pour acheter nos vins
