James Suckling
A little austere, but balanced and polished, with pretty tannins and a subtle currant and mineral character. Lovely now to drink, but will better in a few years.

Clos du Jaugueyron, Medoc, Bordeaux, France
2006 Haut Medoc
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.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
