Domaine Bellegarde Cuvée Tradition 2012

Crossing seas now back to France, this is a good Jurançon.  It is not overly sweet, and therefore, I think this style is probably better suited to more desserts than Sauternes.  There are aromas of caramel, brown sugar and mandarin peel.  The palate has super fresh acidity, and a lovely balance to it.  Any botrytis influence is subdued, and the mandarin, lemon and orange zest characters complement its freshness.  This is easy to recommend.  G-VG
