Wine Makers

Domaine Felines Jourdan. by Claude Jourdan

Claude Jourdan runs this estate close to Meze, the oyster capital of Southwest France. The Domaine was started in 1983 by Claude’s mother and uncle, and some of the Grenache and Carignan vines date back to then. Much of Claude's outstanding Picpoul comes from 50 year old vines from her grandfather’s vineyard about 20 kilometres away.

 

The vineyard runs down to the Bassin de Thau lagoon, where oyster and mussel beds reminded us of Bantry Bay. This explains the superb affinity of her Picpoul de Pinet with shellfish. The moisture-laden breezes are perfect for growing grapes and keep the temperatures a good five or six degrees lower than vineyards only a kilometre away.

 

This cooling influence gives the grapes a chance to develop some complexity, and is one reason that Claude doesn't use oak for any of her wines. To do so would only mask their freshness and delicate fruit flavours. It also illustrates the importance of location and how regional wines often pair best with regional foods. Try this with oysters and test the theory for yourself.

Press Reviews

"Very approachable. The blend works beautifully - apples and pears chopped up and soused with lemon-zested cream. Something biscuity. Lots of flavour." Jancis Robinson.
