The property

In 2010, Jean-François Jacouton created his cellar after having gained experience in different regions and his apprenticeship with one of the great winegrowers of the northern Côtes du Rhône such as "Le Domaine Courbis". Help in these beginnings by Maurice Courbis for the purchase of vines and Joël Durand for the vinification. He will first recover the vines of his grandfather André who is a few kilometers from Tournon. Then now, he works 6 hectares of vines without weed killer on several appellations, the main one being Saint Joseph. Since the creation of the estate, its philosophy has been to produce more sustainably and in a reasoned way.

From a place called historic in Saint Jean De Muzols. The twenty-something-year-old vines are planted precisely on the ridge with granite soil.

Vinification and aging

Tasting

The robe

Beautiful intense red robe.

The nose

A complex bouquet with notes of black fruit and red wood fruit. 

The taste

A frank, intense and structured wine. We find notes of ripe fruit that complete the palate.
