Terroir
Mainly produced from vines on plateaux at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, Côté Faubourg is a blend of wines from various terroirs with clay-limestone soil mixed with river stones.
Vinification
We pick the grapes at peak ripeness to ensure that each varietal expresses its intrinsic fruitiness. The grapes are destemmed and crushed, then fermented traditionally in stainless steel vats. Strict control of temperatures and all other parameters during fermentation produces a lively wine with plenty of fruit and velvety tannins for pure tasting pleasure.
