Languedoc 2015 - Château de Jonquières, Languedoc

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Languedoc is not only about strong wines with high level of tannins and aromas of ripe fruits. Château de Jonquières is quite the opposite with its delicate aromas of flowers, slightly enhanced by white pepper. It’s always nice to see that some winemakers enjoy giving a different expression of their terroir. This freshness and length is particularly remarkable. 

 

Terroir

Chateau de Jonquières is located just under the Causse du Larzac plateau. The vines enjoy warm southern winds from the Mediterranean as well as fresh masses of air falling down from the nearing plateau. Therefore, the temperature gets neither too high nor too low. This kind of conditions favours a slow but regular maturation which gives to the grapes a remarkable complexity.

lecepage Grape variety

It’s uncommon to see such a balanced blend ! In this case, that also gives a perfectly balanced wine : syrah brings tannins and a bit of pepper, grenache provides alcohol and the hint of ripeness, carignan gives flowery aromas and cinsault brings some extra acidity that underline the wine’s freshness.

lemillesime Vintage

Even if 2015 was a great vintage everywhere in France, most Languedoc’s winemakers will tell you that it was not so easy for them. Indeed, when most regions are really happy to get extra sun to get extra maturity, Languedoc get scared of getting to much sun which could give heavy wines with a lack of freshness and no subtlety. Fortunately, in Languedoc only, there were some huge floods in August which regulate temperatures and avoided the feared overripeness. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Château de Jonquières was built in the 12th Century and has been since transmitted from generation to generation. And quality is not something new there, as in 1889 one of their wines received a silver medal in a wine competition which allowed them to start selling their wines in Canada ! Nowadays, Charlotte et Clément de Béarn (32nd generation!!) are in charge of carrying on the Family legacy.
