Wine of the Week: Camin Larredya Jurancon Sec A Lésguit 2006

This lovely wine defies the seasonal description of crisp, refreshing whites as “summer sippers,” for it is really worth drinking year-round. From southwestern France, this is a blend of two-thirds Gros Manseng, with the rest Petit Manseng and un petit peu of another little-known regional grape called Corbou, fermented and aged primarily in stainless steel. It bursts with flavors of white peach and juicy melon and coats the palate with a velvety texture and a long, fruity finish. There’s a smidge of sweetness to round out the fruit (if you just wondered, “How much residual sugar?”—get a life!).

I’ve enjoyed this wine by the glass at the supertrendy wine bar Cork (1720 14th St., NW). You can buy it by the bottle ($17) at Arrowine (4508 Lee Hwy., Arlington).
