"A great vintage for sweet wines. It tastes of ripe pinneaple, mango, citrus but still really fresh. For the sweet wines it’s a really great vintage. We picked Caubeigt at the end of october. The grappes was really small and raisin-like (passerillé), without any rot” - Franck Lihour, Winemaker.


Tasting Notes

Jurançon is a source of many hauntingly lovely sweet wines that tend to fly under the radar of wine lovers in search of sweet release. They tend to have a little more acidity than, say, Sauternes, often giving more of an impression of freshness than cloying sugar. Caubeigt is a lieux-dit tended by fifth-generation winegrower Frank Lihour, who has lit this sleepy region up like a Christmas tree with wines that sing with Jurançon purity and terroir.
