More information:

Domaine Laguilhon is owned by viticulturalist Henri Estreboou. The name of the domaine is most likely named after a shepherds crook (aiguillon) because it is situated on a hill where cows used to bypass in order to get to the fields to graze.   

Domaine Laguilhon’s vineyards are situated in Monein, known for creating richer styles of Jurançon. There are 12 hectares planted with Gros and Petit Manseng. The vines are south facing and the soil is called poudingue de Jurançon (derived from the word pudding) and is composed of fragments of round stones and alluvial sediment which provides excellent drainage in this wet region (1200 mm of rain per year). All of the grapes are hand harvested and picked at optimum ripeness depending on the style of wine made.
