Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, April 2016,
    Score: 90-92

    Pronounced dark berry fruit on the nose, lightly spiced with oak. The tannins are ripe and rounded, which give a nice polish to the rustic hedgerow fruit palate.

Producer

Château Juguet

We have been followers of this château for several years. Owned and managed by the Moueix family (of Pétrus and La Fleur Pétrus fame), Juguet produces plump, ample wines with good structure and minerality. Ch Juguet technically belongs to the commune of St. Pey d'Armens, located to the south of St Emilion. The vines are approximately 25 years old and are grown on sandy clay which particularly suits the cabernet sauvignon grape. In order to retain up front fruit and freshness the wines are only aged for 12 months in 10% - 15% new oak.

Region

St Emilion

South of Pomerol lies the medieval, perched village of St Emilion. Surrounding St Emilion are vines that produce round, rich and often hedonistic wines. Despite a myriad of soil types, two main ones dominate - the gravelly, limestone slopes that delve down to the valley from the plateau and the valley itself which is comprised of limestone, gravel, clay and sand. Despite St Emilion's popularity today, it was not until the 1980s to early 1990s that attention was brought to this region. Robert Parker, the famous wine critic, began reviewing their Merlot-dominated wines and giving them hefty scores. The rest is history as they say. Similar to the Médoc, there is a classification system in place which dates from 1955 and outlines several levels of quality. These include its regional appellation of St Emilion, St Emilion Grand Cru, St Emilion Grand Cru Classé and St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, which is further divided into "A" (Ausone and Cheval Blanc) and "B" (including Angélus, Canon, Figeac and a handful of others). To ensure better accuracy, the classification is redone every 10 years enabling certain châteaux to be upgraded or downgraded depending on on the quality of their more recent vintages.
