Clos du Jaugueyron Margaux 2010
  • Clos du Jaugueyron Margaux 2010
Purchased by Michael Theron in 1993, Clos du Jaugueyron represents well the allure of Bordeaux wine, given its ability to pull Michael away from his family's business as growers in the southern Rhone. Just as Bordeaux would radically alter his destiny as a winemaker, so too would Michael bring to bear his transformative practices of organic farming and biodynamic principles (with all of his vineyards achieving certification in 2008). Using no chemicals in his viticulture and simply plowing and balancing the ecosystem, his vines translate their terroir into structured, age-worthy reds with all the hallmarks of compelling Bordeaux and none of the unwieldy baggage of a large Chateau. Sandy, pebbly soils compliment a parcel of comparatively clay-rich terroir, balancing mineral driven fruits with a more generous, ripe expression, respectively. The nose is floral with ripe red fruit and berry, earthy notes and significant but balanced oak. Dark red fruits, black tea and cocoa resolve into a pleasing and lengthy finish. Drink with classic red meat dishes and game fowl, rich Asian cuisine or strong cheese.
