Hautes combes - AOP

« A rare white wine, fresh and smooth. »

Terroir & vineyards

It is the wild fennel that grows around our vines that gave the Domaine du Fenouillet its name. The Faugères Blanc represents less than 2% of the appellation. Hautes Combes celebrates an exceptional wine-growing area, with our Marsanne and Roussanne grapes producing an elegant, mineral wine, fit for the finest tables.

Vinification and aging

Machine harvesting by night to preserve the aromatic freshness of the grapes. Destemming. Inert gas pressing. Cold static clarification of must so that only the finest lees remains. Fermentation at around 15°C in stainless-steel vats, except for 20% of the grapes, which are vinified in new 500-litre French oak barrels.
