ABOUT THIS WINE

The vines are cultivated on steep slopes with a southern exposure (lieu-dit Fourvier) and on high slopes with eastern and south-eastern exposure (localities Le Plomb and L'Arselie).

Harvested in 50 kg crates, the different plots are vinified and aged separately in order to best reflect the specificity of each terroir. Aging in demi-muids for 18 to 20 months then mass assembly one month before bottling by gravity without filtration.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

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.
