Marion Yves Latrille

Pierre-Yves Latrille, an agricultural engineer, bought the estate over 40 years ago. The land was fallow, but he found the site so delightful, so peaceful, that he felt compelled to undertake the labour of love that transformed this wilderness into a 36 hectare vineyard.The vines are planted on steep slopes that form large amphitheatres and offer a panoramic view of the majestic Pyrenees mountains.

 

His daughter, Marion Latrille, having obtained her diploma in viticulture and oenology, as well as a Masters degree in management, joined her father on the estate in 1999. Marion runs the estate with her father, assisted by an able team of 8 employees. Chateau Jolys wines are lively, crisp yet structured, thanks in part to the Chapelle de Rousse terroir, which is uncharacteristic of the Jurançon appellation.

 

It is this type of detail which sets Jolys apart from the more generic co-op wines, or those of the bigger producers,where subtle differences in terroir become lost in the mix. The soils here are diverse, with lots of morainic stones, known as pudding stones, due to rockslides during the formation of the Pyrenees.

 

These are perfect vineyard soils, since they are sparse and enable the deep root development of the vines. For the dessert wine, the grapes dry on the vine; they harvest in several stages and leave the best bunches to over-ripen and turn brown at their own rhythm, still nourished by the vine.

Chateau Jolys

From our geographical situation to the typicity of our soils through our grape varieties, the location of the Domaines Latrille vineyards brings together for Château Jolys and Château de Jurque the ideal conditions for the optimum development of our grapes.
