Clos du Jaugeyron

Stéphanie Destruhaut and Michel Théron – Clos du Jaugueyron, Médoc

Stéphanie and Michel met in 1988 while in school. Michel was studying enology and Stépahine philosophy and language, which is kind of rare to have in the same school.

In 1990 Michel started to make his first wine from a 0,5 hectares vineyard called Clos du Jaugeyron. At that time, he also worked for another producer to make a living. He realized during the first 10 years that he needed to treat the nature better and has been working 100% organic since 2000. Today they also work biodynamic.

Today Clos du Jaugeyron consists of 8 hectares and are divided between 4 hectares in Medoc and 4 hectares in Margaux. The winery is located in the forest just next to their house in the village of Arsac. Both he and Stépahnie works full time at the domaine.

The wines are subtle, delicate, with a lot of prominent fruit, fine tannic structure and good freshness. Classic Médoc aromatics, as in the old days, which we love!
