Domaine Cauhape Jurancon Sec Chante des Vignes 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Aroused, imperious and treacherous, as all great seducers are. The reputation of Jurançon certainly precedes it, and Domaine Cauhapé without question is one of the most important producers in the Jurançon appellation. The attraction of Jurançon is challenging to put to words, but blindingly obvious when the wine itself is tasted. Its flavors tease between mineral and caramel; between saline and sapid; between floral and sautéed. Jurançon is above all a peerless food wine, a partner that delivers a new sensation with every sip. It is sneaky, almost elusive, but utterly charming and evocative—and will capture the imagination. A very versatile wine, it is prized for its food pairing ability. Perfect foie gras or shellfish.

A strong attachment with the earth, with the vines and the wine, combined with the magic of our 'terroir' Bearnais, led me very naturally to pursue my passion. A true enthusiast and always in pursuit of excellence, I invite you to share with me for a few moments the things that inspire me. Allow yourself to be inspired by my Jurancon wines - Jurancon sec and Moelleux. Aromas and flavours expressed in abundance. I invite you to discover the spirit 'Cauhapé' and hope you have an enjoyable visit. The parcels of Gros Manseng are principally reserved for the production of dry white wines, appreciated for their freshness and the richness of their flavours. The Petit Manseng, gathered by several passes in the vineyard, gives birth to the great sweet wines which evoke flavours of crystallized fruit, roasted notes and honey…… the true expression of 'passerillage'. (raisining of the berries). When nature is on our side, we are able to let her run her course until the winter is upon us. Then the vine offers us its last bunches shrivelled by freezing and withered by time. Read less

Very intense mineral, juicy grapefruit and passion fruit braced by crisp acidity, this is the perfect, refreshing summer wine served with a good chill. A unique expression of Gros Manseng, Petit Manseng and Camaralet Tasted the 2006 vintage with winemaker Henri Ramonteau at the Domaine while visiting Jurancon in 2007 and have been a fan since then. The 2011 is fresh with more fruit and crisper acidity than typical Jurancon Sec.
