2017 Clos du Jaugeyron, Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux

Meeting a girl in Bordeaux, falling in love and deviating from the expected life course, such is the story that happened to Michel Théron of Clos du Jaugueyron. Michel Théronsaw Bordeaux as a place of education, heading there from his family’s estate in Minervois (Languedoc Roussillon) to study winemaking in 1988. The plan was to get his degree and head back to Minervois armed with knowledge, and eventually take over the family business. However, the universe had different ideas, bringing Bordelaise Stephanie Destruhaut into Michel’s orbit, and of course, the rest is history. The pair produced their first wine in 1994 from a small parcel they bought in 1993. It was to be the first of many vintages to follow.

Fast forward to today and you’ll find Michel and Stephanie heading up the 8ha of vines known as Clos du Jaugueyron, located in the south-west edge of the Margaux appellation. As they like to say, it is quite isolated and there is not much to do in the area. And that’s exactly how they like it, after all, for winemakers farming organically, it’s an advantage to be further from neighbours.

Why do we like it?

The Haut-Medoc from Clos du Jaugeyron is a wine of real poise, the palate offers supple, silky fruits of plums and blackcherry. The oak has been well handled and the fine tannins are well knitted in. A lot of Bordeaux 2017 lack freshness, not this one! We believe their approach in the vineyards is the key here.  There is also an incredible length and terrific fine-grained tannins on the finish, it’s mouthwatering, the bottle won’t last long!
