Discover Their Traditional Wines
In the Jurancon, they own around 750 hectares of vines while they also work on vineyards in the Bearn region. The soil is rocky, and the vines on the sloping hills have excellent protection against the wind. 99% of the vines in the area are made up of Petit Manseng and Gros Manseng, while Tannat also grows here. The best grapes are handpicked and used to make their high-quality red, white, rose, and dessert wines. Committed to the preservation of traditional methods, the grapes are handpicked, carefully selected, and grown under “passerillage” practice. Pressing and fermentation of wines take place in temperature-controlled rooms. After the bottling of wines, they are allowed to age for the required amount of time that enables them to get the desired taste and aroma.
