A brief history

As lovers of wine, we wanted to build a family company around three important factors: land, life and the development of a fine product. We fell in love with the Château Jouvente for the quality of its wines coupled with the technical team’s expertise. In June 2016, our dream of owning it became a reality.

The Château Jouvente lies in the heart of Illats, a town within the Graves appellation. The vineyard produces red wines of extraordinary character, elegance and fruitiness, as well as dry white wines that are fresh, aromatic and complex. Our wine variety is both typical and representative of the quality of wines produced in this beautiful region.

At the estate, you will see for yourself the level of passion and precision that go into this work. The two types of soil – clay/gravel and sand/gravel – are treated with sustainable agriculture methods. The core of the work is thus carried out by hand. Each Château Jouvente vintage exudes the elegance that characterises a great Graves wine.

The Château Jouvente team welcomes visitors interested in discovering its latest and old vintages on any day of the week. Tours are organised by Olivier, our technical officer, or Nathalie, our Graves wine specialist and are aimed at passing on knowledge. Each tour begins with a visit of the vineyard, the storehouse and the cellar and ends in a wine-tasting session of the estate’s produce as well as the Château Roumieu Sauternes wine belonging to Olivier.

Already, the deep and luminous yellow gold color invites us without delay to plunge our nose into the glass to enjoy a delicious aroma where the William pear discusses with the pomelo, the quince exchanges with the ginger and the flint summons the mineral ... But it is in the mouth that the match is won with a delicate creamy hint on the attack, a touch of fresh almond, a welcome freshness and a great aromatic length that a beautiful grilled fish will perfectly accompany ... without forgetting the aperitif, seafood, summer salads, grilled white meats, cheeses, fresh fruit cocktails… in short, a large number of possible pairings!

Powerful and elegant like the summer that gave birth to it. Black fruits, Havana tobacco and luxurious woods. A round and soft body, associated with a delicate minty freshness.
