The Jonquères family can trace its history back to the fifteenth century. While their fortified wines have been renowned for many years, it's only in the past 15 years that their tables wines are gaining a similar reputation. Located just south of Perpignan, the terroir always showed great potential, and the newest head of operations, 30 year old William, is continuing to make wines that are hugely exciting.

The estate measures around 40 hectares of which the majority is planted with Grenache, used to make the exceptionally good value Côtes-du-Roussillon wine. There are also small amounts of Muscat, Carignan, Syrah and a tiny bit of Mourvèdre. On their other estate they have some international varietals.

Large amounts of award-winning Muscat and Rivesaltes are made here, which more than hold their own against other sweet wines at the same price point, and higher. The sad fact is that fortified wines are not very fashionable these days and Rivesaltes seems to be a forgotten gem. Even more of a reason to snap it up at these ridiculous prices.
