2020 Domaine Faury Côte-Rotie "Emporium", Rhone Valley, France

Dark ruby in color with a complex aromatic palette combining aromas of black forest fruits (blackberries, elderberries, and blackcurrants) with floral hints (notably jasmine and violet).


There are 3 units left in stock.


The vines are cultivated on steep slopes with a southern exposure (lieu-dit Fourvier)

Harvested in 50 kg crates, fermentation takes place in concrete vats for 3 to 4 weeks with a proportion of 60 to 80% of whole grapes. Aging in demi-muids for 24 to 30 months then mass assembly one month before bottling by gravity without filtration. The wine is left to rest for a year in the bottle.


Along the steep, narrow valley that traces the northern Rhône, the appellations of Côte-Rôtie,
Condrieu and Saint-Joseph take their place among the great wines of France, and Domaine Faury is
one of the region’s most artisanal producers. When Philippe Faury took over the domaine in 1979,
the family was selling wine, peaches and cherries, and the bulk of their clientele was local. Over the
years, Philippe expanded their holdings to over eleven hectares, and expanded sales to an
international client base. In addition, he has shared his savoir faire with his son, Lionel. Since 2006,
Lionel has taken over the reins at Domaine Faury, though father and son still work side by side.
