  • Quatuor is a blend of the domain’s different sweet cuvées, resulting in a generous and extremely complex wine. On the nose, its wide array of fruit notes is particularly pronounced: from pineapple to quince and apricot. In the mouth, the wine is delicious, with well-integrated residual sugars. This wine comes from a siliceous-clay terroir, and was produced with direct pressing, fermentation in barrels and an élevage of one year in barrels. Drink after 20 years in the cellar.

    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.
