Charles Hours Jurançon Sec Cuvée Marie 2004

Member Review by vinwine:

Wines from Jurançon (a region located in southwestern France) have been celebrated since the middle ages. A drop of Jurançon moelleux is said to have moistened the lips of the infant Henry IX at his baptism in 1553. And the French poet Colette was an ardent admirer of the wines, writing "When I was a teenager, I met a prince, imperious traitor, like any great seducer: the Jurançon." This is a wonderfully rich and concentrated wine, with good balancing acidity to boot. The great English wine writer James Turnbull writes: "It represents great quality at a fraction of the price of a Meursault or a Pessac-Leognan." (Fine French Wines)
