This is Clos Thou’s top wine and only 1,500 bottles of this exceptional sweet wine are made every year. Produced from minute yields of late-picked grapes that are left to shrivel on the vine until early December, when the snows are falling in the nearby Pyrénées.

Notes on the producer

Named after Raymonde Thou who created the property during the 16th century, Clos Thou has been in the Lapouble-Laplace family for four generations, with Henri currently in charge. Its vineyards are on the slopes of Chapelle-de-Rousse, one of the best terroirs in the heart of the Jurançon appellation.

Henri converted the domaine to organic viticulture in 2007 after four years of successful trials. Planted mostly with gros manseng, petit manseng and petit courbu, the domaine is a sweet wine specialist, harvesting in successive tries late into December to select perfectly shrivelled-up, raisin-like grapes, thanks to the drying and warm southerly foehn winds.
