Here is in a few words what Château Jouvente represents:
- It is a family property of 8.7 hectares, in the heart of the Graves Appellation in Bordeaux, of which 6.7 hectares are dedicated to the elaboration of our red wines and 2 hectares to that of our white wine. This property belongs to the Gutmann family since June 1st 2016 and is managed by Benjamin Gutmann.
- The practice of responsible agriculture: we do not use any herbicides, we follow a bio-control program and we will have the High Environmental Value certification in 2020. We harvest by hand.
- A young estate that is becoming a reference in its appellation :
a) Our wines are typical and emblematic of our appellation (fruity and elegant but also full of character) and regularly win the appellation competition "le Trophée des Grands Crus de Graves".
b) Our vintages, both red (from 2008) and white (8,000 bottles/year) allow us to offer a diversified selection of high quality wines.
We currently have three types of red wines: Château Jouvente (barrel ageing), La Source / La Fontaine de Jouvente (vat ageing) and the New Generations vintages (Solal, Noam, Elias) in full vinification.
A fine presence in starred and gastronomic restaurants in Paris, Bordeaux, Brussels and Luxembourg.

We have a clayey-gravelly and sandy-gravelly soil. We therefore have a soil that is both fresh and poor, which allows our vines to benefit from a long cycle of maturation and encourages deep
- A place for artistic and cultural encounters, in Illats and in Paris. Thus, we welcome artists and events in our estate (concerts, festival reception, photo and painting exhibitions, poetry, fashion shows, etc.).
Wine lovers, David the father and Benjamin the son were eager to build a family business based on land, life and the promotion of a noble product. Their dream came true in June 2016: they fell in love with Château Jouvente because of the quality of its production tool and the quality of its wines. Two fundamental elements led Benjamin to accompany his father in the management of Château Jouvente : The desire, at 30 years old, to be part of an entrepreneurial experience, as well as the desire to work with my father. The wine here fully evokes transmission and filiation. Nourished by the experience of his team, he likes to create synergies and base his work on initiative, complementarity and consultation.
Indeed, Olivier Bernadet has been the technical manager of Château Jouvente since the 1990s. He knows perfectly the terroir and the vines of Château Jouvente. Nathalie Taris has joined the Jouvente team as sales manager. For two decades, she was the ambassador of the Graves appellation at the Maison des Graves. In 2016, she decided to put all her energy into Château Jouvente.
A historical anecdote: The mansion was built in the 16th century and was the residence of lawyers allied to the lords of Montferrand. The cellar, which now houses the barrels that age our white wines, was a temporary prison. A personal anecdote: Our first harvest coincided with the arrival of a happy event. A special 3000-bottle cuvée for 2016, called Solal, is being developed.
