About

Product Description:

"Château Jeandeman, perched at a height of 88 metres on the highest point of the Fronsac region, overlooks the valley of the Isle and Dordogne rivers. It has a total of 33 hectares of vines, planted in an exceptional terroir bathed in sunshine. Its limestone and clay-limestone soils benefit from a rare characteristic, namely the ferric oxide which gives Jeandeman a unique and much sought-after touch. Clay soils are the soils of all the great Pomerol wines. They hold a large quantity of water but the extremely tightly packed clay retains the water making it difficult for the vines to reach it and draw it up. These clayey plots at Jeandeman produce wines with a deep, dark colour, rich on the palate with smoothly coated tannins offering that much appreciated sensation of flesh. The soils of the limestone plots of the plateau of Jeandeman are identical to the asteriated limestone soils of the plateau of Saint-Emilion. The vines here draw up their nourishment by capillarity. The resultant wines offer a remarkable finesse, with a lower tannin content and more freshness. Jeandeman is therefore a bit of Pomerol and a bit of Saint-Emilion at the same time !"
