Planètes Blanc is the top shelf white wine from the talented couple Patricia and Joël Jacquet in Ventoux wine region in the southeastern part of the Rhône Valley in France. The deep mineral and dense style of this white wine, as well as the classic blend of Grenache and Roussane grapes, is reminiscent of the prestigious white Châteauneuf du Pape. Planètes Blanc is something quite out of the ordinary. The bouquet exudes citrus, pear, musk and orange peel, and on the palate grape fruit and walnuts, all well balanced by a clear minerality. It is a full-bodied, complex wine with a long and intense aftertaste. Enjoy this wine in a wide glass on its own, or serve it with fish or shellfish with creamy sauces.
Le Domaine Du Grand Jacquet is located between Carpentras and Mazan municiplities, on the slopes of the Ventoux mountain. The domain is owned by Patricia and Joël Jacquet who cultivate only 15 hectares of organic vines divided into small plots located in the middle of the wild scrubland, pines, truffle oaks and olive trees and a multitude of flowers and aromatic plants growing at the foot of the vines. The soil is rich in clay and limestone, which cools the soil and keeps its moisture in the hot climate. Patricia and Joël take care of each plot separately in accordance to the seasons and the Maria Thun Biodynamic Lunar Calendar. The Maria Thun Biodynamic Lunar Calendar is an approach to agriculture and horticulture which uses the waxing and waning of the moon and the position of the planets and constellations to determine when to sow and harvest.
The grapes are harvested by hand, striving to hit the exact right time of maturity, which differs from one plot to the next. The grapes are then fermented individually with respect to each terroir as closely as possible. The couple’s passionate, hard work shines through in the personality and quality of their wines. No wonder Le Domaine du Grand Jacquet was selected by the panel of the prestigious French newspaper Le Monde as a great example of the high and unique quality of wine we experience in Ventoux today.
