Domaine de Souch is located on the first foothills of the Atlantic Pyrenees in the heart of the Bearn – the original homeland of Henry the IV - at an altitude of 332m. The vines are planted on the hillside, facing south and overlooking the Pyrenees and the Pic du Midi d'Ossau. The estate has been under biodynamic management since 1994.
This late harvest Domaine de Souch Jurançon Moelleux is a fantastic introduction to sweet wine. Beaming with fresh aromas of exotic fruits balanced with a beautiful acidity, each layer revealing something new.
This wine is best enjoyed at 12°C to 14°C with a chicken "aux onions", veal Blanquette, salty-sweet dishes. Cheeses such as blue cheese, Saint-Nectaire, Vieux Berger or goat cheese from the Pyrenees and the Basque Country, and Tarte Tatin.
Terroir: Clay and limestone soil with puddingstone, "Poudingue" in French.
Average age of vines: 35 years old
Vinification: Grapes are hand-harvested around Mid October/Beg of November. Grapes have to be very ripe but they are not looking for "passerillage". They want to keep freshness, fresh aromas of exotic fruits. Wine is vinified in a stainless steel tank.
