Nestled in the heart of the Jurançon region, between the Pyrenees and the Atlantic Ocean, the vineyard extends over 45 hectares of slopes with generous south-east exposure. The climate combines mountain rigour and oceanic mildness. Combined with the quality of the soil, a precious mixture of clay, silica and pebbles, it allows the quintessence of the noble grape varieties of Jurançon to be expressed here: the big Manseng and the small Manseng. At Domaine Cauhapé, the whole team is constantly listening to nature to better exploit its diversity. Thus, the parcels of gros Manseng are mainly reserved for the elaboration of dry white wines appreciated for their freshness and the richness of their aromas. As for the Petit Manseng, it is harvested by successive sorting, in order to produce great mellow wines that evoke candied fruits, roast, honey...

Our story

It was in 1976 that the first vines of the Cauhapé estate were planted. The first sweet wine was bottled in 1980. In 1984, the first dry wines and the first pellicular macerations took place, inspired by Professor Dubourdieu. Self-taught, 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. For 10 years the estate has been planting and revalorizing forgotten grape varieties such as Courbu, Camaralet and Lauzet in order to widen the range of dry wines. The history of Jurançon has been made on the mellow wines and the new challenge is to use these high-potential grape varieties to create great wines and put the dry whites of the appellation on the front of the stage.

Other little stories

When you ask the owner of the place what his best memories are, there are two that come out on top:- The 1988 Vinexpo Liqueur Olympics, where out of 70 competitors from 11 countries, a Cauhapé wine just 6 months old ranked 5th! When in the time of the great chef Alain Senderens, the Lucas Carton, one of the greatest gastronomic restaurants in Paris, ordered 600 bottles of Jurançon de Cauhapé per year!
