Clos Mazangé is at the foot of the Monein hillsides, a village in the heart of the Jurançon vineyard AOC region, near to Pau and Oloron Ste Marie. The owner, Christian Lombart, welcomes visitors to a traditional Béarnaise house with a small cellar in an outbuilding. He has one hectare of vines which produce around 1500 bottles; production began eight years ago with a 60 % Petit Manseng and 40 % Gros Manseng split. Fermentation happens in barrels and the aging process takes place in vats or barrels depending on the year and the harvest. The Clos has a tasting room which can accommodate up to 25 people. In July and August (subject to availability), guided tours around the vines on a quad bike and trailer are available, ending with a visit to the cellars and wine tasting.
