Le Clos Thou doit vraisemblablement son nom à "Raymonde de Thou", propriétaire des lieux dès 1538, avec déjà quelques arpents de vignes. Aujourd'hui étendu sur 6.80 ha, Henri et Raoul LAPOUBLE LAPLACE perpétuent cette tradition vigneronne depuis quatre générations.

Terroir : le sous-sol est constitué des "poudingues de Jurançon" et de marnes intercalées, surmonté sur les sommets de coteaux, d'argiles à gravier (formations d'âge tertiaire et quaternaire). La couche arable est composée de terre argilo-limoneuse. Des coteaux exposés plein sud (altitude 280 m), un climat tempéré (influence maritime de l'océan atlantique) et des automnes doux et ensoleillés (effet de Foehn) donne une qualité particulière aux vins de Jurançon.

Assemblage : 50 % Gros Manseng, 30 % Vieux cépages oubliés - Petit Courbu et Camaralet - et 20 % Petit Manseng.

Issu des 1er tris début octobre, la vendange entière fait l'objet d'un pressurage lent et attentionné. Fermentation en fût (1/4) et en cuve (3/4) et élevage sur lie fine pendant 6 à 8 mois.

Dégustation : La robe est d'un bel or intense. Le nez est fin, mûr, sur l'ananas rôti, la mangue, la pêche jaune et quelques épices. La bouche est longiligne, étirée par un fil invisible, et délivre une matière mûre au toucher moelleux, avec une fraîcheur plus due à l'aromatique (fruit de la passion, ananas frais) qu'à l'acidité. On peut noter aussi la présence de nobles amers (écorce d'orange) qui apportent un joli contrepoint. La finale poursuit la tension de la bouche tout en concentrant la matière et les saveurs, avec une amertume plus prononcée (kumquat, quinquina) et une persistance sur la mangue et une pointe de truffe.

What is an author wine?

This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their sire, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author wine is anything but a standard, stereotypical wine, made to please as many people as possible. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage in vintage.

An author wine is therefore a wine that does not look like that of the neighbor. Which from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author - the two that can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to carry out his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes, as he can, sometimes ... and too bad if he does not please everyone.

This is why author wines are sometimes classified as "table wine" or "France wine". Because the winemaker did not plan the authorized grape variety*, makes the assembly or vinification recommended in the name **. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that is why we like it! ... That said, author's wines are not systematically marginal: they are present in most of the appellations, and can be part of the elite of these this***. Because they are not content to have personality: they are good, in addition! With in general aDegree of TorchabilityVery high: we never tire of it at the end of the first sip.

As author's wines are not chaptalized, levied, hacked ... They can have very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (resellers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain faithful to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.
