Roussillon has a Mediterranean climate resulting in warm and sunny days, with strong tramontane wind, making ideal growing conditions for grapes and allows a high proportion of organic wines to be made here. The Côtes de Roussillon AOC covers the wider are and produces only dry red, white and rosé . Dominated by the Pyrenees, vineyards are planted on lower slopes of steep hillsides of limestone, schist and granite. Historically trained as bush vines with work done by hand which, although some are using trellising today, is still the common practice. The dominant grapes are Carignan, Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah and wines must be made as a blend. The Côtes de Roussillon Villages AOC covers a much smaller area for red wines only and plantings on slightly higher slopes resulting in more acidity and concentration.


Founded in the 12th century by Cistercian monks, this important estate of around one hundred hectares is now the property of the Dauré family. Located in the heart of the Agly Valley, in the Roussillon hinterland, the Château de Jau is a pioneer in wine tourism by creating the first wine-grower restaurant in the 1970s and a contemporary art space. The small road that leads to the castle winds through a Mediterranean setting where olive trees, cypresses and vines share the land, giving the whole an air of Tuscany. The climatic conditions are ideal. the sunshine which allows the schistose marls to store the heat during the day and to restore it to the grapes at night, the Mediterranean Sea which tempers the summer heat and the tramontana wind which blows all year round ensures healthy maturation of the grapes.
Tasting Notes
The nose reveals a rich range of black fruit, liquorice and black olive aromas which continue on the palate with strong influence from Syrah. This wine offers power, volume, density and a solid structure, with lots of freshness, elegance and silky tannins. A full-bodied, sophisticated wine. An overall quaffable, delicious and food-friendly red wine that will transport you to the Mediterranean.
This wine pairs beautifully with BBQ food and rich dishes such as Beef casserole or Lamb Tagine, but also makes a delightful accompaniment with your charcuterie board.
