The winemaker

The history of Château de Jau


Château de Jau was founded in the XIIᵉ century by Cistercian monks, amidst an exceptional Mediterranean setting of olive trees, cypresses and garrigue. It was then exploited for a long time - from the 15th century until the end of the 19th - century by the Xopi family.

Later, Château de Jau was taken over by a Catalan family from Barcelona, then by a family of local wine merchants, the Bourdouils. In 1973, it was bought by Jean and Bernard Dauré, two wine merchants. They set about restructuring the estate from top to bottom. The buildings were renovated, while extensive planting improved the vineyard.

From the 1970s onwards, the Dauré's embarked on wine tourism, which was totally innovative for the time. They also created a contemporary art foundation.

Bernard's children, Estelle and Simon, subsequently inherited Château de Jau and still manage it today.

The Château de Jau vineyard


The Château de Jau vineyard is located in the foothills of the Corbières, in the Agly valley. The vines cover around 100 hectares and are surrounded by 500 hectares of garrigue and idyllic wild landscapes. Château de Jau is the only vineyard on this bank of the Agly.

The vines benefit from the Mediterranean climate, with over 300 days of sunshine a year and an annual rainfall of 500 millimeters. The vines are battered by the tramontane wind, which dries and purifies them. They also benefit from the sea air.

Château de Jau's soils are made up of silts, clays and sands in the riverside area. The slopes are composed of schistose marl. The vines are planted at an altitude of 70 meters on the banks of the Agly and 170 meters on the slopes.

70% of the Château de Jau vineyard is planted with red grapes. The grape varieties are typical of southern France, with Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache Noir. The vineyard dedicated to white wine is made up of Vermentino, Macabeu, Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris.

The estate now wishes to focus more on white grape varieties, of which 40 hectares have just been replanted.

The estate has been run under agriculture biologique (organic farming) since 2018, and has held the organic label since the 2021 harvest.
