Domaine Cauhape Noblesse du Temps Jurancon 2016 (Half Bottle 375mL)
Step into the sunshine and let's raise a glass to the history-rich and vine-covered hills of Jurançon! Cauhapé estate is a true gem, sprawling over 54 hectares with perfect southeast exposure. This picturesque vineyard dates all the way back to 1558 when the first vines were planted. And what a journey it's been! From a handful of acres, Cauhapé has now grown to cover 53 hectares of prime vineyard land.
But what makes this terroir so special? Well, it's all in the details. The unique microclimate of Jurançon is ideal for growing aromatic white wines, and the soil, made up mostly of clay and silica, lets our native grape varieties shine. With vineyards planted on the hillsides at varying altitudes, all the way up to 400 meters, and steep slopes providing ample drainage, Cauhapé is truly a sight to behold.
And let's not forget about the star of the show: the wine! The important thermal variation between day and night at the end of summer and autumn helps to preserve the precious acidity that gives Cauhapé wines their one-of-a-kind character. So come on, join us for a tour of the vineyard, and the cellar, and taste the fruits of the vine!
