Jurancon Sweet Wine

When I read your Christmas Tart recipe and said no to the Rum Butter, I thought about the possibility of a sweet white wine. I really think it would be gilding the lily but I would like to pass on a recommendation for other occasions.

When enthusiasts think of sweet wines Sauterne is the most well known, but the price is prohibitive for most of us. Down here we feel that Jurancon doux offers very strong competition and is terrific value for money. It is traditionally served as an aperitif, with foie gras and desserts.

Whilst not widely known in the UK a quick search on Google should give you a wine merchant.

Jurancon Sweet Wine
Serves 8
  • Grapes
  • Sunshine
  • Expertise
  • Time

The older it is the darker it becomes, so wines vary from pale to deeply golden. Aging is reflected in the price, we have bought young wines 2 -3 years old and kept them to our advantage.

Serve chilled.
