Tasting Notes

There is a short list of Bordeaux winemakers that can be called truly iconic. Jean-Claude Berrouet is one of those names; his history is inextricably linked to THE greatest right bank Bordeaux, having been the winemaker at Petrús and Trotanoy for over 40 years. After his retirement from Petrus in 2007 he and his sons began to focus on their family estate, Vieux Chateau Saint Andre, which is in a tiny hamlet of the right bank of Bordeaux. This wine, from a globally revered icon, is one of the greatest value opportunities to drink the very best of Bordeaux.

"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Vieux Château Saint André reveals a subtle, very pretty nose of kirsch, Black Forest cake and black raspberries with hints of red roses, fragrant earth and ground cloves. The medium to full-bodied palate is softly textured, understated and refreshing, finishing with a lively mineral skip in its step. This is a beautifully crafted Montagne Saint-Émilion that will appeal to those that adore soft-spoken wines of restraint and a quiet kind of intensity."

The Producer

Vieux Chateau Saint Andre

Dubbed “a true insider’s wine producer” by Jane Anson in Inside Bordeaux, Vieux Château Saint André in Montagne-St Emilion is an estate to watch. Second-generation owner-winemaker Jeff Berrouet tells us why.

Vieux Château-Saint-André lies in the Montagne-Saint-Emilion appellation and was created in 1978 by Jean-Claude Berrouet, former winemaker at Petrus. His son has managed the estate since 2002, in addition to other properties such as Château Samion (Lalande-de-Pomerol) and another in Irouléguy.

Berrouet was recruited to be winemaker and technical director for Etablissement Jean-Pierre Moueix in 1964 where he was responsible for the production of their complete range of wines from Pomerol and St. Emilion. These estates included over a dozen properties among which were Chateaux Magdelaine, Trotanoy and Petrus. He carried out this role for 44 vintages. Berrouet retired formally from winemaking in 2007, but with the help of his son, Jean-François Berrouet, has continued to work as a technical consultant for wineries in Israel, Argentina, China and France.

JC Berrouet owns the 8 hectare Vieux Chateau St-Andre in Montagne St Emilion, which he runs with his son Jean-François. Upon his retirement, Christian Moueix said “Jean-Claude Berrouet’s contribution has not only been lengthy, but also, immeasurable. With a lifelong passion in poetry as well as wine, his philosophy has been for the wines to express their terroir, always favoring elegance over extraction.
