Domaine Cauhape Symphonie de Novembre Jurançon Moelleux 2016 37.5cl
Domaine Cauhape Symphonie de Novembre, Jurancon, France
Symphonie de Novembre is made from 100% Petit Manseng grapes left on the vines until November to concentrate the sugars. Petit Manseng is prized for its high acidity which gives these sweet wines their beautiful balance and refreshing finish.
In 1970, owner, winemaker and label artist, Henri Ramonteu took over his family's cattle farm in Monein in southwest France. He sold the cattle, purchased four hectares of vines, and started Domaine Cauhape. Today, the Domaine is one of the most highly regarded in the appellation and the wines are hallmark Jurancon, showcasing the very best of what the region has to offer.
The vineyards are south and south-east facing and are situated up to 400 metres above sea level, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and retain good levels of acidity.
