Since 1995, Les Jamelles has been produced by Catherine and Laurent Delaunay, two young winemakers from Burgundy, whose family has been producing wine for four generations. After working in California, they both fell under the charm of the Languedoc-Roussillon region in the South of France.

Catherine Delaunay is one of few rare women to work as a winemaker. Throughout the year, in particular during the harvest period, she travels the length and breadth of the region visiting the growers who work in partnership with Les Jamelles, supervising the vinification processes, organizing the aging of the wines, and carrying out the final blending.

A veritable maestro, passionate about the art of wine tasting, Catherine oversees and is responsible for the quality of each the “Les Jamelles” wines.

Les Jamelles wines come from the Pays d’Oc (Languedoc-Roussillon), the biggest vineyard region in the world. It boasts a wide range of geographic features, from the sunny beaches on the Mediterranean sea to the plains of Béziers, to the banks of the Rhône to the Pyrenees mountains. As in Burgundy, the region offers an infinite of terroirs and microclimates, allowing very different wines to be produced.

The secret behind the high quality of the Les Jamelles wines lies in this rich variety of complementary terroirs – some provide fruit, others structure or roundness, and others freshness.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our Sauvignon Blanc has a lovely pale yellow colour. It is rich and aromatic with intense scents of fruit (gooseberry, passion fruit, green tomato, wild strawberry and lemon). It also displays floral nuances (honeysuckle), and a mineral "flinty" scent from the limestone soil. It is very fresh on the palate with a good acidity and a natural hint of CO² which gives it freshness. Rich, round and well-balanced finish.
Vineyard Notes
Limestone soils of the Gard département, the plains of the Hérault, and the Aude Valley. Cool climate with lots of light and rainfalls. A part of the blend comes from the east of the Aude (cool region). Relatively young vines grown on terraces.
Production Notes
Grapes harvested early in the morning and transported rapidly to the winery. Pressing after a short period of skin contact (about 8 hours). Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats at low temperatures (15 to 18°C). Contact with the air is avoided. Few-months aging on its fine lees, in a carbon dioxide atmosphere. Early bottling. No malolactic fermentation.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve well chilled (8°C), as an apéritif, with seafood, fish or summer dishes (asparagus, mixed salads).
