Domaine Cauhapé is one of the leading names in the Jurançon appellation, an icon of the South-West region. Best known for its sweet wines, Cauhapé is also renowned for its dry wines.
Created by Henri Ramonteu in the 1980s in Monein, Domaine Cauhapé takes its name from "Caussapé", which means "foot warmer" in Béarnais. The first vines were planted in 1558, and since then, the expertise of this emblematic Jurançon vineyard has continued to develop through its dry and sweet wines. Cauhapé owes its renown to the curiosity of Monsieur Ramonteu, who has never been afraid to break codes and shake up preconceived ideas about Jurançon wines by creating new, sometimes improbable cuvées. The high potential of the region's so-called rare grape varieties - Gros and Petit Manseng, Camaralet, Courbu and Lauzet - makes for harmonious, high-quality blends.
Petit Manseng is the spearhead of Domaine Cauhapé, expressing its full potential in the estate's sweet wine cuvées. Its thick skin means it can be harvested later in the autumn, providing excellent ripeness. As for Gros Manseng and Courbu, they add finesse and fruitiness to the wines. Cauhapé also makes the most of the region's forgotten grapes: Camaralet and Lauzet, which ennoble the dry Jurançons, to produce wines that are more authentic and expressive than ever. Henri Ramonteu is an epicurean whose philosophy is based on the phrase: "To listen to nature is to engage in a dialogue...". To this end, the vineyard has undergone a major soil energization program, and the use of phytotherapy has been de rigueur since 2021.
Domaine Cauhapé produces both dry and sweet white wines, appealing to both those with a pronounced sweetness and those who prefer a more classic, fruity style. The Jurançon terroir expresses itself through fruity aromas and distinctive golden hues. Cauhapé produces gourmet wines with finesse and elegance. Discover Geyser, a blend of all the estate's grape varieties, which fully represents Henri Ramonteu's philosophy. Great sweet wines such as Ballet d'Octobre and Symphonie de Novembre showcase overripe Petit Maseng, with its truffle notes and astonishing complexity. A true success story!
