Henri Ramonteu, owner and producer
From the steep slopes facing the Pyrenean mountain, Henry Ramonteu produces an exceptional range of dry and sweet Jurançon. All the work is done by the man’s hands and heart, and the passion pushes the winemaker to wait until January to harvest his last plots!

“Considered by many to be the top estate of Jurancon, Domaine Cauhape sweet wines can rival the best of Barsac/Sauternes. Their rarity and quality make them a fascinating alternative to the more renowned sweet white wines of Bordeaux” Robert M. Parker Jr.
