Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Winemaker Estelle Dauré has blended the best of the Languedoc region’s traditional grape varieties – Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Syrah - to make this brilliantly vibrant wine.
Think black cherries and an earthy, spicy edge, which works perfectly with roasted red meats.

Situated in the heart of the Agly Valley in the Roussillon backcountry, 20km from Perpignan, Château de Jau has been in the Dauré family since 1974. The château was originally founded in the 12th century by Cistercian monks and the property remains the residence of Sabine and Bernard Dauré. The château itself was constructed at the end of the 18th century. The small road that leads up to the house weaves its way through typically Mediterranean scenery where olives, Cyprus trees and vines intermingle.
The vines are influenced by the sea and refreshed by the north wind, enjoying an ideal exposure that helps to ripen the grapes to full maturity. In the vineyards that run along the Agly valley and those that cling to the slopes up to 150 metres in altitude, Syrah and Mourvèdre drive their roots deep into soils of clay, clay-limestone and marl. The higher altitude vineyards are more suited to Carignan and Grenache and these vines dig their roots into a rich bed of white lime.
