About This Vineyard
In the seventies, Yvonne Hegoburu and her husband found a little house only 6km far from their family house in Pau. They litterally fell in love with the place and decided to buy it. Their dream was to grow vines but Yvonne’s husband died before they could make their dream come to life… In 1987, when she was 60, Yvonne decided to make this dream come true in tribute to her husband. It was a way for her to pass all her love for her husband to their land. So she planted 6 hectares of vines in her property. Right from the start, she chose local grape varieties: Petit Manseng, Gros Manseng and Courbu. She also started some monumental work to renovate the estate. In 1994, Yvonne decided to run the vineyard following the principles of biodynamic viticulture.
After a few years of perseverance and hard work, Domaine de Souch has acquired the reputation as one of the best wines in the Jurançon appellation… What is the most amazing about Yvonne is her personnality that she transmits to her wines. She is really someone to meet once in a life.
David Biraud, who ran for France the ‘World’s best sommelier’ competition this year and who is chef sommelier at “Crillon” in Paris said recently in a French magazine, when asked about his major regret in life: ‘It is to have never met Yvonne Hégoburu, producer of Jurançon.’
