Jean-Michel Bonfils

Chateau de Vaugelas has been the home of the Bonfils family for five generations. Jean-Michel Bonfils and his three sons (Laurent, Olivier and Jerome) tend vineyards filled with the traditional varieties of the sunny south. The estate is located in the hills near Narbonne, reputed to be the best of Corbières’ eleven growing zones. The vines are planted in argilo-limestone soils mixed with the same large, round galets (pebbles) as those found in Châteauneuf du Pape.

 

The Bonfils have something of a rebellious history. Jean-Michel’s grandparents were involved in the revolutionary socialist government formed in Paris in 1871 known as the Paris Commune. The violent military suppression of this government forced them to flee to Algeria where they made a living making wine on the plains near Oran. A generation later, Jean-Michel completed the circle by returning to France and continuing to make wine in the family name.

 

Today Jean-Michel and his sons have expanded the family vineyard to encompass some of the best terroirs in South France. Helped by the prevailing climate of dependable sunshine and an ever-present wind (which reduces the need for pesticides and fungicides), they farm organically in essence. This sumptuous, engaging red is a testament to their hard working principles.

Chateau Vaugelas

Château Vaugelas extends its 150 hectares of vineyards in Camplong, between Mount Alaric and the Black Mountains. The vineyard has the originality of being implanted only on one and the same plot. The clay and limestone soils of the property are composed of deep blue marl and rolled or gravelly pebbles on the surface. It marries old vines of regional grape varieties and more recent plantations carried out in Cordon de Royat and in Goblet, traditional size of the Corbières, allowing a better adaptation of the vegetation to the sun and the soil.
