Jean Pascal Lacaze
  • When his main client went bust this brilliant winemaker was left in a pretty sticky situation, thankfully we met him at the right time and with Angel funding rescued his delicious wine!
  • Originally trained in Bordeaux, he is now an iconic winemaker in Chile, famous for his Domus Aurea Cabernet Sauvignon. Every vintage he has produced has got a 90+ rating and is dripping with medals and critical acclaim.
  • Those wines sell for an average of $60 a bottle, now we have his very own range, exclusive to us, for just a snip of the price. All thanks to Angel support!

Jean Pascal Lacaze's Story

"My great grandfather started it back in Bordeaux, buying vineyards and working in wine. I have followed. My granfather had his own propriety. Me I prefer to be the winemaker…because I tried to do everything and the only thing I’m good at is making wine!

Growing the grape, making the wine, presenting and selling the wine, then making a sustainable company is what makes me happy. Everything must have a sense. Every year is different, and beauty is showing difference in a different way. Why do I really love winemaking?…, nature is peaceful.

My wines usually show the expression of a place. I am looking for identifying the place and how I can translate it in a bottle. I try to build or make appear the identity of the wine (and so the place) with a different style expressed by the vintage.

The reason I know people like my wines? Because after drinking a glass, they will ask another glass! I think because they get to sample Chile in the glass. Finally, my wines are different, very different.

With my first vintage at Domus Aurea (2003)I felt I had finally had it right. Lots of responsibility yet everything looks like very easy. I enjoyed it a lot! Then I understood that I was seated in a beautiful terroir.

 My proudest moments have been getting all the great ratings for Domus Aurea every vintage. (90+ on every review)

 My new proud moment? To have a wine with my name on the bottle, all thanks to Angel funding!"
