  • A blend of five grape varieties of the Jurançon appellation, this cuvée is matured on its lees in stainless steel vats for five months. Its nose is intense and complex, with aromas of citrus fruits and exotic fruits, as well as floral and peppery notes. On the palate it is powerful and fresh, opening up to flavours of yellow fruits and citrus fruits. To produce this cuvée, Manseng, Petit Manseng, Camaralet, Lauzet and Courbu were vinified with 12 hours of skin contact maceration before fermenting in vats. The wine was then matured on its lees in stainless steel vats for 5 months.

    The Domaine Cauhapé, one of the most well-known domaines in Jurançon, is run by Henri Ramonteu, passionate grape-grower and one of the region’s flagship producers. Every year, his 43 hectares of vines produce 250 000 bottles of this golden wine, made using two grape varieties: Petit Manseng (for sweet wines) and Gros Manseng (for dry wines and the first sweet wines). The vines are situated at 500m above sea level, between the Pyrenees and the Atlantic ocean, therefore benefitting from a climate which combines harsh mountainous conditions with the gentleness of the sea. The soil, a rich mix of clay, pebbles and quartz, allows the grapes to elegantly express their full potential.
