DOMAIN OF FENOUILLET

DOMAIN OF FENOUILLET, A MOSAIC OF PLOTS

Terrace after terrace or along the contours, chiseled in shale, the countless parcels of Domaine de Fenouillet climb the most beautiful slopes of the Faugères appellation. In a still intact nature flourishes the Mediterranean vegetation: oaks, arbutus, broom, cistus … and the delicate fennel with aniseed aromas from which the domain takes its name.
If cultivating the vines is a permanent challenge on its friable shale soils and steep slopes, the obstinacy of the winemaker is often rewarded because this soil has a lot to offer.

THE ELEGANCE OF THE ALTITUDE SCHISTES

Lying against the last foothills of the Massif Central, the vineyards of the Domaine de Fenouillet bloom on a relief of hills and narrow valleys. This singular topography creates mountain valleys, small terraces at mid-slope, where the best wines of the property are born. The vineyard thus enjoys an ideal location on the highest hills of the Faugères appellation (up to 300 meters), conducive to a slow and regular ripening of the grapes, low acidity, fresh fruit aromas and velvety tannins. .
