Isabelle Carles et Franck Pascal
Isabelle and Pascal left their job in Paris in 1999 to pursue their passion for wine. They purchased some of the best parcels of A.O.C. Bergerac and set up Le Jonc Blanc for its first vintage in 2000. Nowadays, Franck and Isabelle farm 15 hectares of vineyards organically and produce some of the best A.O.C. Bergerac wines, but also some more ‘natural’ but nevertheless delicious cuvées. The name ‘jonc-blanc’ means white ring and the vineyards are actually located on top of a hill circled by limestone.
Vin de France “Fruit” rouge
Vineyard: each varietal in the blend comes from a disctinct parcel
Grape variety: 45 % Merlot, 35% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 20% Malbec
Terroir: Cabernet sauvignon (3ha) on calcareous clay, Merlot Noir (1.35 ha), on a calcareous plateau. Malbec (1.40 ha) planted in 2003 on chalk with fossils. Winemaking: 5 to 6 days of maceration before fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats.. One daily “pigeage and remontage”during fermentation. Elevage is on fine lees. Bottled unfiltered and unfined with just a few mg of sulfur.
This is a natural wine without added yeasts and with very little, or no added sulphites. This leads to wines with great purity of fruit but might also lead to more outspoken aromas. Beware that this style might be different from what you are used to when drinking conventional wines.
