Located in the Béarn, the Domaine Montesquiou has seen several generations of winegrowers of character succeed one another, who have striven to reveal the Pyrenean terroir of the Jurançon hills as best they can. Our white wines are produced using specific grape varieties: Gros Manseng for its freshness and aromatic power, Petit Manseng for its roundness and concentration, Camaralet and Petit Courbu for their finesse and character. These historical varieties are found on our sunny slopes, facing south-east. Our vocation is to express our clay and siliceous soil in each of our wines by separating our plots according to their grape varieties and exposure. Harvesting is manual, at optimum maturity, and each bunch is carefully picked for the same team and placed in boxes. All our harvest is pressed and vinified by the two Montesquiou brothers at the Domaine located in the heart of the vineyard.
We live on our small family estate dating back to the 18th century. The traditional pebble wine storehouse is a testimony to the generations of wine lovers who persist in sublimating an exceptional terroir. My grandfather was one of the first to travel around France to promote our Jurançon wines and the link with our customers is essential because it strengthens the identity of our wines. Each generation has striven to improve the plantations and installations with a constant focus on quality. We are two brothers at the head of the property and we wish to expand our range and promote our appellation.
We are very attached to our Béarnaise roots. The profession of winegrower has been handed down to us since we were very young and the hardness of the winemaking process was quickly balanced by the mysteries of winemaking which sharpened our curiosity. Add to that the great encounters at wine markets and fairs and you have the ingredients that motivate us in our business. We work as close as possible to our terroir by maintaining ploughing and sowing in our plots, applying the principles of Biodynamics (preparations, calendars...)
