Since those beginnings on just one hectare, Henri has built up the estate to today’s area of 47ha and become the most renowned producer Jurançon producing both dry and sweet. Located only half an hour west of Pau and 100km from Biarritz, Domaine Cauhapé enjoys a temperate Atlantic climate in the rain shadow of the Pyrenées. With a warm, dry föhn wind blowing in from the south and ventilating the vineyard so botrytis isn't a big factor. The sweet wines are made from late-harvested fruit picked from October onwards, in some years all the way into January, resulting in wines of great complexity and purity.

Domaine Cauhapé is planted to the intoxicating and exotic native varieties, Gros Manseng and Petit Manseng, whilst also utilising three other old native varieties: Camaralet de Lasseube, Lauzet and Courbu Blanc. All vine work is done by hand and all the fruit is hand-harvested and hand sorted. The sweet wines are picked in successive tries. Vinification is done in a mix of stainless steel and barrel, depending on the cuvee, but it’s Henri’s famously meticulous nature that underwrites the legendary status of the wines.

Tasting Note:
The nose displays beautiful complexity and freshness, evoking citrus and exotic fruit notes, along with hints of pepper and fennel from the old varieties, Camaralet and Lauzet. In the mouth, there is lovely volume and complexity with flavours of yellow-peach and exotic tropical fruits leading to a long, textural finish of excellent persistence and refreshing acidity.

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with High acidity and No tannin. It is Pronounced in it's intensity with High alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
