St Chinian Domaine des Jougla

The Jougla family can be traced back as owning the property since 1595. The property lies between 95 and 107 metres above sea level in a hot dry Mediterranean climate, two thirds of the vines situated on foliated shale rock and the remainder on alluvial clay soil. Yields never exceed 40 hl/ha.

The cellar is modern and immaculate. They use a pneumatic press and then ferments his wines at a temperature of 28°, the cuvaison lasting between 15 and 20 days, using a combination of both cement and stainless steel tanks.

Les Tuileries is made from a blend of Grenache Blanc, Viognier with a yield as small as 25 hl/ha  and Vermentino, making for a delicious aromatic white wine. Initiale is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Mourvedre and shows the true character of the fine terroir from which the fruit comes. Laurence Jougla, ably assisted by her brother Alexandre and father Alain, is doing quite amazing work here. Top St Chinian. Now Mr Parker has discovered Domaine des Jougla!
