In 1970, owner, winemaker and label artist, Henri Ramonteu took over his family’s cattle farm in Monein in south west France. He sold the cattle, purchased four hectares of vines and started Domaine Cauhapé. He made his first sweet wines in 1980 (historically, Jurançon produced only sweet wines) and his first dry wines in 1984. Today, the domaine is one of the most highly regarded in the appellation and the wines are hallmark Jurançon, showcasing the very best of what the region has to offer.
The nose has delicate floral perfumes, coupled with notes of apricot and white peaches. On the palate, fresh citrus fruit flavours and bright acidity lift the wine, making it beautifully balanced and refreshingly moreish. Grapes: 60% Gros Manseng, 40% Camaralet.
