Terroir & Vines:
Château Grand Boise benefits from a very unique terroir, with its high altitude vineyards ranging from 300 m to 650 m alt. at the highest point. 80 parcels, spread over 500 hectares of land, representing 34 hectares of planted vines.
80% of the vines are north facing, planted on clay and limestone soils. The other 20% are south facing and planted on pink marble soils.
A troop of 300 sheep, honey bees, horses and chickens, have recently joined the team to contribute to our philosophy of natural farming.
To preserve this delicate balance, our wines are certified organic since 2010.
This exceptional terroir brings freshness, depth and complexity to our wines.

Plot:
Jadis is made from our 100 year old vines. The 3.7 acre plot is co-planted Grenache, Carignan and Syrah on a mix of clay and limestone soil at 1140 ft and north facing. These vines have roots that can reach down to 100 ft deep attaining many layers of mineral compounds.

Winemaking:
Hand-picked grapes with strict selection in the vineyard and picking out of individual grapes bunches, if necessary. Due to the co-plantation, the three varietals are also co-fermented. Whole berry maceration and manual pump over take place directly in open 500l oak casks. Pressed then aged in the same 500l casks for 15 months.

Tasting notes:
Intense red berry aromas, with a touch of sweet spices and a stony finish. Silky mouth, elegant structure and incredible length.

Food & Wine pairings:
Rosemary roast lamb, Pheasant and juniper berry stew.
Venison in blackberry sauce.
