ABOUT THIS WINE:
From a 7 hectare property with vines planted in a combination of clay, gravel and sand. A near equal blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from an area in the commune of Arsac called Le Tertre. The average age of the vines is 30 years. Originally from the Languedoc, Michel Jaugueyron's winemaking is quite simple as the focus is on the vines, their growing season throughout the year. Hand-harvested and fermented whole-cluster with native yeasts. Aged in barrique (25% new).
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:
Michel Theron wasn't supposed to be making Haut-Medoc. Originally from the Languedoc Roussillon, when he went to Bordeaux to study winemaking in 1988, the plan he had in mind was to go back to the family estate and take over. It never happened. Instead, he fell in love with a Bordelaise, and in 1994, the couple produced their first wine from a small parcel in Cantenac they bought in 1993.
Today the estate has developed to a little over 7 hectares in Arsac, Cantenac, and Margaux. Classic Medoc soil with a lot of small gravels and sand, Michel is a firm believer in organic/biodynamic viticulture, converting officially with the 2008 vintage. The vineyards are plowed, the ecosystem is taken care of, and Michel has never used synthetic products in the vineyards.
