Pure Roussanne, very stylish..., persistent yellow fruit flavours complemented by mandarin and verbena. Tannins of a goldsmith's precision. Great wine...
Aurel white is a full and expressive Roussanne that reminds of hay and offers delicate honeyed notes. It is aged for one year in barrels, one year in vats and then two years in the bottle, giving it a beautiful patina.
In the white version, Aurel is a pure Roussanne that has a Rhone valley feel on the nose and a Mediterranean breadth on the palate.

The Domain ArretxeaThérèse and Michel Riouspeyrous, who are now quietly handing over the estate to their sons Iban and Théo, can be proud of their success on their family estate. They have become the reference for Basque wines and perhaps even for the whole of the South West. They own 8 hectares of vines on a very particular terroir which mixes poor soils and altitude (sometimes 400 metres!). Soils of sandstone, ophite, schist, ampelite... which, when worked in parcels with local grape varieties (courbu, petit manseng, tannat...), show the full potential of this land. Great terroir wines are born here, full of minerality.
The Domain Eric BordeletEric Bordelet is the reference when you want to taste an exceptional cider or perry. With an exceptional raw material, rich of 19 hectares of more than fifty varieties of very old apple and pear trees (several times centenarians), he produces cuvées of high gastronomy, stemming from the organic and biodynamic agriculture which one finds from now on at the greatest starred people.. A perfectionist with unrivalled experience, excellence and rigour at the highest level in the orchards and in the cellar have naturally led him to become the star of the speciality...
