Météore is this domaine’s core wine and is a 60:40 blend of Gros and Petit Manseng rooted in the soils of Gan in the commune of La Chapelle de Rousse. The terroir here is some of Jurançon’s most austere and sits on a rare band of Triassic limestone. Atop the limestone bedrock lies a blanket of poudingue, a mixture of clay with chalk, crushed pebbles and large galet stones—the legacy of the nearby Ossau Valley.

In the tiny cellar, no larger than a medium-sized garage, the grapes are pressed as whole bunches and ferment naturally in stainless steel before aging in used oak barrels from Pessac-Léognan. Brimming with the energy the Salharangs bring to this remote corner of southwest France, it’s a layered yet compact white with a swathe of juicy texture flecked by notes of tarragon, pollen and orange rind and a mouth-wateringly succulent, mineral-infected finish.

Reviews

“In Météore 2022, the gros manseng, still under the influence of wood during its tasting, also presents a fair balance and a precision which reveals the salinity of the soil.”
