Saint Etienne de Baigorry, Irouleguy Blanc, Xuri, 2015

15.99

Irouleguy is a small appellation in the Les Pays Basque, producing mountain fresh, white wines made from the Gros and Petit Manseng grapes together with a little Petit Courbu. It’s kind of chunky, due to the high sunshine hours, with ripe melons, clementine and mango flavours. Yet there’s also a slightly balsamic note, balanced with some jinglingly tense, citrus acidity. The Xuri is fermented partly in stainless steel and partly in barrique, with a great big whack of warm alcohol on the finish. An ideal autumn, or winter, white, it is superb with sheep or goats cheeses.
