66% Tannat, 17 % Cabernet Franc, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon Arretxea (from the Basque arre meaning stone and xea house) is a small six-hectare domaine entirely planted on southfacing terraces. Michel and Thérèse practise sustainable viticulture throughout their vineyard & use biodynamics in particular on the plot where they grow white grapes.  The Tannat-rich reds see 4-5 week macerations, repeated pigeages and long elevage in oak with lees-stirring make for strong yet harmonious wines. The ripeness of the grapes emerges in crystallised black fruit scents & a full palate perfectly structured by tasty tannins.
