Chateau de Jau!
Our featured producer this month is Chateau De Jau owned by the Daure family.
Vineyard – Chateau de Jau is made up of about 100 hectares in the Roussillon area. At 150m high, along the Agly River, the family have planted Syrah, Mourvedre, Cabernet, Muscat, Vermentino and Grenache in clay and limestone soil. A little higher, from 150 to 300m high, they have planted Carignan and Grenache Noir on calcareous soil.
Style of the Wines – All of the wines are aged in stainless steel tanks in order to keep the fruit profile of the varietals.
