*Domaine Castera Jurancon 2008

Made from the Manseng variety(95% Gros, 5% Petit), this white from SW France has a strong element of ripe pear, with some apple at the finish. Although it styles itself "sec" on the label, it's not precisely that, at least not in this incarnation. Agreeable enough to drink, just don't expect something bone dry. The closeout price of $5.99 makes it very attractive.
