There’s an interesting exchange over on the 1st June 2018 Weekend Drinking thread concerning this wine. The essence being that the examples didn’t really inspire.
(This wine is, in essence, the white wine of Madiran, being made for the most part from the two Manseng grapes. A couple of other grapes are allowed in support. It comes in dry and sweet forms.)
I’m starting this thread because I love wines from the Mansengs, but I too have never really found a Pacherenc that I would want to buy again. Up to now I have tended to think it must be just me, or that I have been unlucky with my selections. But now I’m beginning to wonder.
Is Jurançon simply the “sweet spot” for these grapes? Or have I not had a decent example of a Pacherenc? Can anyone suggest a good one or two?
