CHATEAU JURA PLAISANCEJacques Le Failler and Alain L'Helguen, Brest entrepreneurs and friends for more than 15 years, took over the Château Jura Plaisance in April 2015. Since then, they have made every effort to reveal the potential of this property.
"We are taking reasoned action," explains Alain Germon, crop manager, without overdosing the treatment product and working the soil to avoid settlement and not pollute with weeding products. Pruning is done in simple guyot to achieve a correct quality and performance. We strip the grapes to allow them to have a good maturity before picking them.”
The Montagne Saint-Emilion 2016, is a wine of a beautiful density, aromatic expressive on the fruit, accompanied by a light noted oaky, which sublimes the fruity character. The mouth is compact but already affordable. This is a marker of the great vintages and the ability of the wine to age. Creamy and powerful finish… the evolution is harmonious and fresh. 2016 in Jura Plaisance has everything of a great.
The 2017 vintage was marked by a severe spring frost, but also by a hot summer and especially a very long Indian summer. The 2017 Château Jura Plaisance has the DNA of this vintage with a fruity profile of small black fruits slightly spicy, a fresh and balanced mouth with racy tannins.
The 2018 has a powerful nose of black fruits, cherries and blackcurrants, strawberry jam from the woods, all embellished by a breeding emphasizing elegance and respect for the fruit. On the palate, the wine is round, generous, with suave tannins, borne by notes of red fruits like the Napoleon cherry, raised by a touch of pepper and peanut.
