Intuitive and honest winemaker, at the head of the Cauhapé estate in Monein, Henri Ramonteu also takes time, casually, to dream his vineyard and shake up the Jurançon planet. With him, wine turns into art. To intoxicate the world of Dionysos and “re-enchant” our taste buds. Between two tastings, two phone calls, two exhibitions, two projects, two ideas, Henri Ramonteu submits to time and nature. On the one hand, he’s capable of disappearing from the planet, beating all dates. On the other, we find him ubiquitous, in the hollow of its Monein vines. Moreover, he himself plays with this profound ambivalence which tends to make him unclassifiable.
His motto : “Details make perfection, but perfection is never a detail”, which admits of no limits to his quest for the absolute.
