Not as dramatic a visit as to Brana, but the wines of Michel and Thérèse Riouspeyrous are considered the finest of the appellation. A good opportunity to taste the rare white Irouléguy, a heady dry wine with lots of fruit and bite. Biodynamic as well as organic, this small domaine is inspired by passion.
