What They Say

The 30 year-old vines of Le Fauquet are grown in 'Le Petit Montmirail'; South South West of the famous limestone massif of Les Dentelles de Montmirail. The vines produce a round wine, very fruity with rich aromas. This pure and distinguished wine is made with Grenache and Syrah grape varieties which give it a personality of its own.
