From one of the most highly regarded domaines in the Jurançon, 'Chant des Vignes' is a blend of Gros Manseng and the indigenous Camaralet.
It displays a perfumed nose and layers of honey, blossom and ripe stone fruit balanced by zesty acidity.
Domaine Cauhapé own 43 hectares of vines. This is a real stronghold in Jurançon, given that the entire appellation totals only 1,000 hectares. Planted in the foothills of the Pyrenées, 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. The vines are on average 10 years old, sustainably farmed and they are planted on siliceous-clay soils, which have excellent water retention for the summer months. Vineyards are planted with Petit Manseng, Gros Manseng and Courbu as well as lesser well known indigenous varieties, such as Camaralet.
