JF Lurton

Jacques et Francois Lurton SA was set up in 1988 by two brothers Jacques and Francois, sons of André Lurton, a renowned Bordeaux producer (Chateau Sonnet, La Louviere, Dauzac...)

Backed by the wealth of knowledge and know-how acquired with the experience gathered internationally and through their work as consultants for major players, they decided to create their own range of wines from around the world.

Setting out on the basis that it is possible to make good wines anywhere vines grow under normal conditions, they made a patient selection of excellent terroirs in the most varied regions of the globe.

Chacayes 2003 Malbec

During the mid 1990s Lurton planted a vineyard especially for the production of exceptional wines on the high plateaus of the Andes. The location had all the qualities Lurton was looking for; poor soil made up of gravel, sand and volcanic dust, a cool climate owing to the high altitude (over 3000 feet) and pure water for irrigation. They are now starting to reap the benefits of this exceptional investment. This wine is dark bright plum colour, showing lots of glycerine extract. The nose is immediately attractive with high quality oak scents mixed with ripe fruit. The aromas of black cherries and bitter chocolate are associated with low cropped Malbec. Fresh sweet and well integarated chocolate and roasted coffee bean flavours on the palate with good lively acidity balancing the richness of fruit. Long and spicy finish, with finely integrated oak and tight ripe tannins indicating a long life ahead. A truly great wine. [read on...]

Les Hauts de Janiel Grenache-Sauv. 2012

The vineyards from which the grapes are harvested to produce this fascinating wine are located on the hillsides belonging to Minervois AOC, near Carcassone. It is made from 80% Grenache Blanc and 20% Sauvignon Blanc. The Grenache gives an exotic expression of ripe apricot and a touch of spice to the crisp more citrus fruit nots of flowers, truffles, brioche and oak. The flavour i well balanced with plenty of volume, but also a hint of acidity on the finish, giving the wine good length. [read on...]
