BORDEAUX | FRANCE
Time, steady perseverance and care have enabled Jean Philippe Janoueix to build up a fine portfolio of wine estates. The properties are spread carefully across Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Pomerol, Saint Georges Saint-Emilion and Bordeaux Supérieur, offering rare diversity and quality. We seek to draw out the true character of our terroir, working the fruit with finesse and care. Oak is used subtly to accompany without overwhelming the fruit, allowing for the great terroir to express itself. After many years of trialling, cigar barrels have now become part of our signature. They bring richness, structure and silkiness to the mid-palate of our wines, with roughly 20% of our production aged in these special casks. Since 2016 we have been carrying out tests for sulphur-free, with promising results.
