  • Chamarré Jurançon Tradition Jurançon France Southwest France Sweet 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Ooo-la-la! This little French dessert wine from Jurançon is so yummy, you'll need to buy several of the little bottles to stash away for future needs! A blend of three grapes, the Chamarré is a medium sweet dessert wine, sure to delight even those who are not fans of this style of wine. A beautiful, golden to amber color with a nose of tropic...

  • Domaine Cauhape Noblesse du Temps 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice, golden yellow in colour. Fine aromas of jammy bright, yellow fruits and barrel wood. A whole world of delicious fruits on the palate, perfectly balanced off with nice fresh acidity. The long finish is increasingly driven by citrus and apricot. This is an absolutely lovely dessert wine which will evolve gracefully for at least 10-15 ye... Read More

  • Séduction de la Beaugravière Jurançon 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Impressive wine. It is labeled by the winemaker as a semi sweet wine, but when I smelled it in my glass I could bet it was sweet. This wine is very good without any meal, but even better with a fish. I recommend it, as one of my favorites. Read More

  • Charles Hours Jurançon Uroulat 2004

    Snoothrank:

    It is a clear white wine, the legs were a little oily, the flavor is amazing, it is sweet and a little bitter at the same time. It has a sweet smell and is a wine where I could finish off the bottle by myself! It is not for a seasoned wine drinker however it has a very sweet flavor. Definately a dessert wine. Read More
