A Wine That

reinterprets the classics: this is pure, beautiful Bordeaux, but from a garage, not a château. But when you spend all of your time in the vineyards farming biodynamically like this winemaker does, who needs a château? This is gorgeous. Think fresh blackcurrants, cedar, the intoxicating scent of fresh earth with a leathery twist.

Where and How?

This comes from biodynamically farmed Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc (no Merlot), planted in the gravel soils of Margaux.
The wine fermented naturally, and was aged for three years in diamond-shaped concrete tanks.

The Winemaker: Clos du Jaugueyron

Michel Théron was, like so many winemakers, drawn to Bordeaux for wine school. He arrived in 1988 from the Languedoc, and while studying he fell in love — both with a young woman, his wife Stéphanie, and with the wines of the Médoc. He never went home.
It wasn’t until a kind neighbour sensed something in them, deciding to offer up a small pre-phylloxera parcel for lease, that they had the chance to start making their own wines. Over the years, they adopted artisanal winemaking methods and biodynamic farming practices. Now, they believe in passing it on – and as such, the very parcel that gave them a start in life, is now in the hands of two budding young winemakers. One artisan domaine helps another to get off the ground; long may it continue.
