about the producer DOMAINE BORDENAVE
domaine bordenave is located in the heart of the appellation of jurançon and is one of the oldest properties in the region, carried on from father to son and daughter since 1676. following major investments in the wine storehouses and the reorganization of vineyards, the winery has presented its first vintage in 1993. planted on the southern and western slopes of monein at the foot of the pyrenees, the vines have good exposure to sunlight which ensures good maturation of the grapes. the soils are poor, composed of clay and silt, but are irrigated enough to allow the grapevines to take root deeply in the earth. due to these tough conditions, the grape yield is limited but has strong concentration. the winemakers employ sustainable agriculture and use organic fertilizer on their vines. the average age of the vines is 25 years old. domaine bordenave is planted with 2 grape varietals: gros manseng and petit manseng, both of which are common varietals in the jurançon region. the gros manseng is used to produce dry wines that are fresh and fruity, yet mellow with good balance between sweetness and acidity. the petit manseng produces a variety of wines, from mellow vintages to liqueur like wines with aromas of candied fruit and honey.
