Didier Barral, a man of conviction, began running the estate in 1990, in search of authentic expressions of its soil. Helped by his brother Jean-Luc, this obstinate winemaker has created a culture of fashion to respect the ecosystem, to promote interactions between the plant and animals and enhance immunity of the vine.
The nose is marked by beautiful notes of black fruit compote and the mouth shows a great concentration. The balance is perfect and the finish, full of freshness, seems endless.

Winemaking Manual harvested, depending on the variety, grapes are de-stemmed (in general, grapes from the youngest vines), however whole clusters are also used. Wine is vinified in gravity-fed, cement cuves, fermented with natural yeasts. Maceration takes place for 3 to 4 weeks with regular, manual punch-downs in cement tanks. After maceration, grapes are lightly pressed with an old, wooden, vertical, basket press. Faugères is aged for 2 years in barrels (10% new oak).
