Details

Souch Moelleux 2013, a little extra age, a little more intensity and complexity. Made using the local varieties of Petit and Gros Manseng and some Courbu, her sweet wines distinguish themselves with the intensity of the acid backbone. I fact they can be drunk with almost any course savoury or sweet and the wines never cloy at all so most are produced in a standard 75cl bottle because at 12% abv, you can very easily finish off a bottle of Souch in one sitting. If you like dessert wine, I urge you to invest in a bottle of Yvonne's wine, often we site wine as unique but hers genuinely is both in the story that paved the way to their production and also in their sheer sublime quality. As the wines get older they tend towards more honey and confit fruit characters, we have a few bottles of older vintages and they are maturing nicely in our shop, well worth an investment for a special occasion.

The story of Madame de Souch is a sad and at the same time inspiring one. In the 1970s Yvonne and Rene Hegoburu found the ruins of an old house at the top of the hill of Laroin and decided to renovate it in order to retire there. Later, they retired together with the ambition of planting a few acres of vineyards in the Jurançon appellation. Tragically René died prematurely very soon after they moved in and before they could realise their dream. Yvonne decided to preserve her husbands memory and 30 years later, her stunning biodynamically produced sweet wines grace the tables of almost every Michelin star restaurant in Europe!
