After leasing vineyards for a number of years, Michel and Stéphanie Théron finally got the opportunity to purchase 2ha of abandoned land in Margaux - overlooked due to its location next to the cool and humid Landes forest. Clos du Jaugueyron is composed of 16 parcels around Macau and Arsac and a rudimentary winery - as far as Bordeaux standards go - next to their house in the middle of the forest.

Advocates of cement tanks, light extraction, and minimal manipulation, these are pioneers who have inspired and fostered a new generation of vignerons, such as Closeries des Moussis, Osamu Uchida and Vincent Quirac.

With the lifted freshness of cherry and mocha, the palate of the 2017 Haut-Médoc offers supple, silky fruit alongside soft, well-integrated tannins. A reminder that Bordeaux at this price doesn't have to be boring. Great stuff.
