FROM 1ST TO 3RD MAY 2015, ALSO (RE) DISCOVER THE LUSSAC SAINT-EMILION!
12 Mai 2017
MEET OLIVIER CHARPENTIER, A DYNAMIC WINEMAKER FROM CHÂTEAU HAUT JAMARD, LUSSAC SAINT EMILION.
The Saint-Emilion Portes Ouvertes take place in four appellations: Saint-Emilion, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Lussac Saint-Emilion and Puisseguin Saint-Emilion.
A FAMILY ESTATE IN LUSSAC SAINT-EMILION
Olivier Charpentier was 12 when he decided to follow the family tradition. Since 2003, he has done exactly that. With his wife, he is the fourth generation to cultivate 12 hectares of vineyards of Château Haut Jamard. Proud of his farm, “Typically family orientated”, Olivier Charpentier produces two wines, the Château Haut Jamard and the Prestige de Haut-Jamard, in Lussac Saint-Emilion appellation. The first wine contains 80% Merlot, “fruity, fleshy, typical of Saint-Emilion”. The second contains “95% Merlot, from old vines with low yields. It is rich, concentrated, complex and can age for at least 8 to 10 years”.
