Château Jouanin is on the edge of the village of Monbadon, just a few miles East of St Emilion, right on the border between the Côtes de Castillon AC and the Puisseguin St Emilion AC. The property is comprised of a plateau together with all the slopes and escarpments leading up to it. There is accordingly a very wide range of exposures and soils and this makes the wine stand out amongst area peers. Soil is clay and chalk, and farming has been organic since 2003. Château Jouanin is the first of the two properties Pierre Taix and his children and operate, the other being 9 hectares of vineyard in Puisseguin, called Château Fongaban.
