Château Planères - ()

Château Planères logo

The winery can look back on 4 generations of winegrowers and is a family collaboration between the Jaubert and Nourry families. It is located on a stony plateau that dominates the village of Saint-Jean-Lasseille. Due to the rough conditions, the vine has to work hard here to reach full maturity. The poor sandy soils with many boulders and limited limestone oblige it to dig very deep with its roots to ensure its food supply. This means that the very old grapevines can also provide themselves with water in times of drought and thus ensure a constant and balanced ripening of the grapes. Located between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, the climate here can also be very harsh. The constant play of winds and temperature fluctuations results in wines that display an incredible refinement, concentration, structure and balance. All Planères wines are therefore individual expressions of all these conditions together, with each vintage also requiring its own approach. Don't expect a bombastic or stewed jam style here, but delicate, mineral and terroir bound gems with a lot of personality that will undoubtedly make the heart of the true wine lover beat faster.

About the winery 

Roussillon France
picture of
100% Grenache. Beautiful, bright, ruby red color. The nose is mainly dominated by black fruits subtly accompanied by hints of spices and licorice. On the palate this is confirmed and we also find impressions of violets, tangerines and raspberry coulis. Its rich but fine flavor is supported by soft tannins and ends in a remarkably long finish.

Crystal clear and brilliant color. Lovely fresh aromas of grapefruit, citrus and pineapple typical of Malvoisie. In the mouth it is nicely round and supple without losing elegance. Fresh and dry agrum fruit is nicely balanced with more exotic fruits. Long, exciting and refined finish.

Beautiful shiny golden yellow color with green reflection. Rather fresh spicy scents like fennel and field flowers mingle with notions of exotic fruits like peach, pineapple and grapefruit. Balanced and versatile character that can be perfectly combined both as such and with different dishes. Tourbat determines the length and firmness of the aftertaste.

Beautiful, seductive, light rosé color. Delicate aromas of strawberry and raspberry accompanied by pronounced floral notes. Complex and wonderfully balanced character. Finesse and expression go hand in hand here. In the long finish, its aromatic and gastronomic qualities come more to the fore again.

Intense, dark, ruby red color. Syrah emerges first and provides intensely dark flavors with hints of spice and pepper. Grenache makes it juicier, adds complexity and tempers the Syrah and Mourvèdre provides nicely structured but soft tannins and gives it a wild edge. Despite these 3 powerhouses, the wine remains refined and elegant with an interesting mineral undertone. Roussillon at its most complete!
