The Vineyard

The grapes are rigorously selected by plots, then harvested by hand.

The vinification is an elegant combination of traditional methods and qualitative carbonic maceration (Syrah). Then, the wine is aged 12 months in oak barrels specially chosen for their fine grain.

Faugères is part of the 5 Languedoc CRUS since the beginning of the year. Faugères is the only AOP in Languedoc over a homogeneous territory made of Schists (‘slay stones for over 90%) which contribute to the tense and fresh personality of our Faugères wines.

The protected landscape, composed of ridges rising to 400m, is very favourable for the implantation of quality vineyards. Schist allows the roots to penetrate deeper which increase the trade with minerals. It promotes the fine aromas and complexity to the wines.
