History & Geography
When the Gutmann family got to know about the Château Jouvente a love story began. As great amateurs of wine, especially from Bordeaux, we, parents and sons, decided to embark on this intense and exciting family adventure. From the 16th century to the middle of the 18th century, the residence where the Château Jouvente Master House is now located was home to seigniorial judges of the André family. The were under the jurisdiction of the Montferrand Barons, one of the region’s oldest noble families from the neighbouring commune of Landiras. The Master House was built at the end of the 19th century but Château Jouvente’s premises are still marked by its centuries-old history. The white wine barrel cellar is located in an underground vault formerly used as dungeons! Originally, the name “Château Jouvente” referred to the town of Illats. It was only at the start of the 20th century that the town’s name changed and at the end of the 20th century that the surrounding lands became vineyards.
