Le Rêve 2013 - Vignoble les Fusionels, Faugères

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Faugères is a very interesting appellation. Its numerous hills are not only magnificent : it is a source of diversity between parcels. It gives wines pretty different one from another. “Le Rêve” (the dream in French) is a good example: most people are used to powerful and spicy Faugères, but this one is more characterized by its aromas of violet and its light hint of white pepper. It also displays an enjoyable length. 

 

Terroir

Faugères is submitted to a Mediterranean climate and its soil is made of friable schists especially porous. This special kind of ground retains a huge quantity of water. During the day, the southern sun heats this mass of water, and during the night, vines keep on ripening, nurtured by this warm water that flows through their roots.

lecepage Grape variety

Carignan is a variety mainly known for its ability to produce huge quantities of wine. Therefore, it was widely used after the phylloxera crisis while the south had to produce wine for the whole France. Then, carignan vines were abandoned as the wine was judged of bad quality. But decades later, winemakers discovered that when the vines are more than 60 years old, carignan can in fat give very concentrated wine with great aromas of ripe fruits !

lemillesime Vintage

You might have heard that 2013 was a bad vintage in France. In fact, it was a rainy vintage. But if too much rain is bad for most wine producing regions, it’s a blessing for Languedoc-Rousillon. Indeed, the region frequently suffers draught. In 2013, rain filled the phreatic table which helped the vines keeping fresh during summer to give perfectly balanced wines. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Arielle Demets grew up surrounded by winemakers. Indeed, her parents own a winery in Champagne and gave her the passion of vine since childhood. However, a few years after obtaining her oenologist degree, she felt in love with the wild beauty of Faugères’ sceneries. That’s why she started making wine there !
