Wines du terroir de Faugères
Wine tasting, red, rosé and white and Fine de Faugères :
Vineyard expertise is enhanced by work in the winery, allowing the schist soils to produce top quality, powerful and elegant wines. The soils naturally impart freshness and minerality to these sun-filled wines with tannins that are amazingly refined, velvety and silky even in their youth.
Growers blend Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Consult to make full, round and powerful wines. A sensitive approach to ageing - which sometimes involves oak and varies according to blends - yields wines that are fruit-forward, fresh and honest yet dominated by mild spice notes entwined with faint scents of garrigue and rockrose.
THE APPELLATION’S ROSES
Which are made from the same varietal range as the reds, offer up delicious fruity notes. Their color spectrum, which runs the gamut form champagne to carmine pink and rosewood, not only reveals the creativity of the wine growers but also a respect for the inherent characteristics of the grape varieties and vintages.
Roussanne, Granche blanc, Marianne and Vermentino (Rolle) are blended to make the white wines and fully encapsulate the mineralogy imparted by the schist soils. Made on a more boutique scale, Faugères white wines show aromas recalling almonds and ripe apricot, underscored by piece.
