Le Clos Thou doit vraisemblablement son nom à "Raymonde de Thou", propriétaire des lieux dès 1538, avec déjà quelques arpents de vignes. Aujourd'hui étendu sur 6.80 ha, Henri et Raoul LAPOUBLE LAPLACE perpétuent cette tradition vigneronne depuis quatre générations. Le sous-sol est constitué des "poudingues de Jurançon" et de marnes intercalées, surmonté sur les sommets de coteaux, d'argiles à gravier (formations d'âge tertiaire et quaternaire). La couche arable est composée de terre argilo-limoneuse. Des coteaux exposés plein sud (altitude 280 m), un climat tempéré (influence maritime de l'océan atlantique) et des automnes doux et ensoleillés (effet de Foehn) donne une qualité particulière aux vins de Jurançon. – Description from markomkc

  • Hi Everyone,New here so be gentle. Ever since I've heard about "Mega-purple" I've tried to do as much research on the topic as possible. Most people on the retail side either don't know about it or claim ignorance. Once I picked up on what I perceived to be M/P I've had a hard time getting passed it. Michael and David's 7 Deadly Zins seems to be... Read More
