Grenache, Syrah, Mourvédre

Alain Jougla produces wonderfully structured wines from his vineyards in the foothills of the Cevennes. The Jougla Estate is a family property which has been owned by generations of wine-growers over hundreds of years; the present family can be traced back to as early as 1595.

Alain was one of the first in the area to use barriques back in 1986 for the Cuvėe Signėe. He and  his wife Jocelyne are delighted that their adult son and daughter have recently decided to follow in their parents footsteps and will bring new ideas to enhance traditional methods.

The estate is situated in the north-west corner of the Hérault region in the Languedoc province south of France on the southern slopes of the Cevennes foothills in the heart of the wine-producing area classed as Saint Chinian.

About This Wine...

“Keep an eye out for the wines of Saint Chinian; this region, deep in the Languedoc, produces some great value wines. Those from the steep schist terraces have an intense aroma, a characteristic firm concentration and structure. The looser limestone soils tend to make for bigger, softer and rounder wines. Both are usually made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, sometimes with a little Carignan. The Jougla Cuvée, from schist soils, has a lovely taut elegance, fine tannins balanced by delicious ripe cherry fruits, which make it quite special. Try it with roast game or red meats.”
