(64) Pyrénées-Atlantiques

Nestled in the heart of Jurançon, between the Pyrenees and the Atlantic, the vineyard extends over 45 hectares of hillsides, generously exposed to the south-east. Combined with the quality of the terroir, a precious blend of clay, silica and pebbles, it allows us to express here the quintessence of the noble Jurançon grape varieties: the gros manseng and petit manseng... At Domaine Cauhapé, we are constantly listening to nature to better celebrate its generosity. The plots of large manseng are mainly reserved for the production of dry white wines that you will appreciate for their freshness and the richness of their aromas... With small manseng, harvested by successive sorting, the great sweet wines are born which evoke candied fruits, roast, honey..., the very expression of passerillage... Thus "Noblesse du Temps", "Quintessence de Petit Manseng" and sometimes even "Folie de Janvier" flourish. Beautiful illustrations of an osmosis between the terroir, the know-how, the controlled modernity and the sensitivity of men.

Our story

Great Wines are not born by chance, but we must go back a long way, to the genesis of the Jurançon soils, where the ice age followed by global warming gave rise to a land of clay and pebbles. From these distant times our vines draw all their sap and freshness from the ground, and it is in the lands of "Caussapé", where the first vines were planted in 1558, that is to say, in Béarnais, now called "Cauhapé". The magic of nature, the vines warm up to the first rays of the sun, a strong attachment to the soil, the vine and the wine, combined with the magic of this terroir, led Henri Ramonteu to put his sensitivity at the service of his passion. 1976 was the year in which the first vines of the Cauhapé estate were planted. The first sweet wine was bottled in 1980. In 1984, it was the beginning of the dry fermentation and the first skin macerations inspired by Professor Dubourdieu, Henri Ramonteu developed his vineyard year after year while improving his production methods. The successive purchase of perfectly exposed hillsides and the planting of local grape varieties have allowed the increase of a qualitative production of original wines with a strong character. 10 years ago, the estate planted and revalued forgotten grape varieties such as Courbu, Camaralet and Lauzet in order to expand the range of dry wines. Jurançon's history has been based on sweetness and the new challenge is to use these high-potential varieties to create great wines and put the dry whites of the appellation in the spotlight. From yesterday to today, Domaine Cauhapé imagines for you the wines of tomorrow.

Other little stories

Details make perfection and perfection is never a detail, here is a leitmotif of Henri Ramonteu. Add to that a wine concept that wants each bottle of the estate to be created to seduce you and not to impress you, here is the Cauhapé spirit!When you ask the owner of the place what his best memories are, there are two that come first:- the 1988 Vinexpo Olympics, where out of 70 competitors from 11 countries, a Cauhapé wine just 6 months old is ranked 5°, it is the consecration for the estate and the recognition of the enormous potential of the appellation, - when at the time of the great chef Alain Senderens, Lucas Carton, one of the greatest gastronomic restaurants in Paris, ordered 600 bottles of Jurançon de Cauhapé per year!
