Faugeres

Faugeres is one of the highest-quality appellations in the Languedoc. Many of the vineyards are schist and are located at quite high altitudes. The wines are perhaps not as rustic as those of other nearby appellations. Almost all of the production is red; the main varieties used are Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, and Carignan. The former three are required, and Carignan is on the decline. The little white wine that is made is generally Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, and Vermentino.

  • I started a bottle of Mas Gabinele Faugeres that I bought at January's London France Show for £10 and it was just gorgeous. I have now discovered that in 2014 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate gave this 94 points and I reckon it deserved them. Read More

  • I tried the Chateau des Estanilles Grand Vinde Faugeres Rouge 2011 while in Marseillan. It was wonderful. I've found article about the vintner, but nothing about availability in the states.
