SAINT JOSEPH, CORNAS, CONDRIEU, VIOGNIER & VINS DE PAYS

Established since 2010 in the small village of Vion, Domaine Jacouton is located in the heart of the Northern Côtes-du-Rhône. It is here, beyond the village, on the side of the Rhodanian hills, that Jean-François Jacouton decided to cultivate his native soil by installing his 6 hectares of vines, mainly Saint-Joseph.

Viognier, Marsanne, Syrah, Chasselas or Roussanne : our white wines are looking for freshness and minerality, while our red wines are sometimes silky and fruity, sometimes more robust. Domaine Jacouton also offers a range of Vins de Pays, combining finesse, elegance and delicacy.

THE ESTATE

Trained at Domaine Courbis, at the southern tip of Saint-Joseph appellation, Jean-François Jacouton continues his apprenticeship in several regions. First in Côte-Rôtie, then in Savoie, he returned in 2003 and became a collaborator in the wine cellar of Tain-l’Hermitage. Driven by the desire to vinify his own grapes and also to meet his customers,he created his cellar in 2010.

His grandfather André introduced him, when he was very young, to the pleasures of working in the vineyard. It gave birth to a real passion for Jean-François. This is why he first took over the land of his grandfather, a few miles north of the city of Tournon, leaning against the hills that surround the Rhône Valley.

The granitic plateau overlooking the village of Vion makes it a favorite land for Chasselas and Viognier, perched at an altitude of 400 meters. Jean-François brought back this taste of « mineral freshness » from his years spent in Savoy to enrich his Viognier IGP Colline Rhodaniennes.

Savoir-faire

ouverture d'une barrique domaine jacouton

The small village of Vion is one of the five first municipalities of the Saint-Joseph appellation, and the vineyards of the Sainte Epine cuvée are its historical cradle. Powerful and silky, Saint-Joseph red wines oscillate between sweet and spicy scents for some, and notes of olives and garrigue for others. The white Saint-Joseph cuvée « Souvenirs d’André », tribute to Jean-François’ grandfather, offers a wine with white fruits aromas, all in roundness and freshness.

Domaine Jacouton’s wines are mainly vinified in barrels, including Vins de Pays, which prove to be an excellent price/pleasure ratio.

Beyond the soils composition and the topography which make machine-work complicated, Jean-François gives priority to the quality of the grapes harvested and the preservation of soils. This is why almost all the work is done by hand, from tying up to the harvest, including pruning.

Domaine Jacouton also strives to produce its wine in the most sustainable way possible, and has therefore been committed, since its creation, to sustainable agriculture.
