Clos Thou

The Clos Thou is located at the heart of the Piemont in the Pyrénnées region, the noble cradle of Jurançon wines.
The 9 hectares of this Estate spread across the sidehills of the wild moutains of the place called "La Chapelle de Rousse". The Lapouble Laplace family take turn in managing the Estate with every passing generation.
The vineyard has been certified organic viticulture since 2003, and…
the unique soils of Poudingues emphasize the energy and tension of the wines.
The harvests happen rather late: the golden berries of Petit and Gros Manseng, Camaralet or Petit Courbu are selected, with great care, from october to december.
The berries, after having been dried up by the foehn, a local dry wind, turn into small aromatic bombs. Dry or sweet, the wines will…
then shine with special balance and relief.
The delice de Thou is a very nice entry-level wine: it is very sapid, multi-facetted despite the heat of the latest days.
More profound, the Guilhouret cuvée is a blend with a majority of gros manseng, with a fermentation naturally taking place in barrels or in vats. The wine is then aged on the lees for 8 months.
Finally, the estate proposes a sweet wine, the Julie cuvée, made from…
the sortings of october.
Charming as well as gracious, the wines seduces at thre same time with its aromatic power (dried mango, white pepper, vine peach), but also impresses with its mineral tension. Digest, the acidity of Gros Manseng will temper the residual sugar. A magical pairing with a foie gras or an aged blue cheese!
