My Notes:

About Clos du Jaugueyron:

Initially, the Clos du Jaugueyron was a small vineyard of 40 acres Cantenac. In 1993, Michel Theron , straight from the Minervois , settled on this small area. Quickly under the spell , he never ceased to expand its field to bring today to more than 5 hectares in two appellations , Margaux and Haut-Medoc .

The plots are located in the municipalities of Macau and Arsac on serious beautiful well-drained that provide early crop maturity . Since 2012 , the wine is certified organic agriculture approach , capping almost two decades of work as sharp in the vines with soil. The vines are 53 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot in with vines planted between 1988 and 2000.

In the winery, you will find the cement, steel and oak , with a third new wood for farms. There is also and above all the passionate man that promotes listening, observation and respect for nature and refuses the application of a method that would be the same every year.
