Château Lafitte is located in Monein between Pau and Oloron Sainte-Marie within the Jurançon appellation. The castle can trace its origin back to the 14th century, but it wasn’t until the current owners, Philippe and Brigitte Arraou, began making wine here that the viticultural history was recaptured.

Today, their son Antoine is in charge and has taken the estate in a decidedly natural direction, including Demeter certification for all 5 hectares.
Here the holdings are all Petit Manseng and Gros Manseng on clay and limestone. A new winery was built in 2018 with an emphasis on self sufficiency (solar, gravity, rainwater) along with some new tools, like amphoras, and experimental approaches such as macerated whites, pet-nats, and zero-zero cuvées.
These are very classy natural wines that are both transparent and vibrant and stand out in sea of pretty uninteresting wines that surround them.
