Château de Fauzan - Cesseras

Château de Fauzan vineyard is located in the Minervois on a clay limestone plateau, 350 meters above sea level. It was the passion for trout fishing in the river Cesse, which led Albert, the grandfather of the Bourrel family, to Fauzan in 1956. Located in the region of La Livinière, near the Gorges de la Cesse, between the characteristic departments of Aude and Hérault, Château de Fauzan creates exceptional wines with passion and authenticity. Over the years, the Bourrel family has been working to increase the potential of this exceptional country, a legacy of the time when poetry is bottled.

Syrah, Grenache and Carignan grapes have been planted. These vineyards, roughly 50 hectares, are exploited by Jean Philippe Bourrel, who took over the family domain in 2001 and wants to offer new quality wines to the consumer. It was only after his high school studies that Jean Philippe decided to further expand the domains that his grandfather had purchased in 1956. The vineyards are right next to the village of Minerve at a reasonable height so that special techniques can be applied.

  Since the takeover, he has already taken various initiatives to produce quality products. More than 20 hectares were replanted as the vineyards yielded insufficient returns due to aging and less care. The location at a higher altitude is an aspect that allows over-maturation on a vine, that also gives the grapes extra acidity, which is clearly reflected in the Minervois and Minervois La Livinière wines. The exploitation already enjoys an A.R. label while a further conversion to total bioculture is being prepared. Proper treatment is not only needed at the rank, but also in the basement; Jean Philippe has therefore completely renovated the vinification room and technically equipped it with, among other things, a computer-controlled thermoregulation.

Under this space, partly realized with the support that Europe gives to young winemakers, a storage space has been created where the wine can mature and be stored. According to Jean Philippe, a few new cement cuves fit perfectly with the biological and biodynamic exploitation he envisages. The late and slow ripening of the berries provides a firm color; a good sugar content gives a positive final balance after pressing and vinification...

Minervois

A.O.C. Minervois

The Minervois is one of the most ancient vineyards of the Mediterranean region. Indeed, its land was chosen by the Romans as providing ideal conditions for the first vines they planted in Languedoc Roussillon. Its name comes from the ancient city of Minerve, a stronghold built by the Romans and dedicated to the goddess Minerva. Since that time, many amphora shards and vestiges of cellars have been discovered, testimony to the importance of this vineyard. The region, austere in winter and redolent with sunshine in summer, has survived over the centuries its invasions by barbarians, Arabs and Christians. The essence of Minervois la Livinière, as in so many Midi appellations, is the blend; a marriage of different grape varieties that adds subtle nuance of flavour to the whole. Natural alcohol level must reach a minimum of 12% without enrichment (so no chaptalisation) and maximum yield is a modest 45 hl/ha. Ageing may be in barrel or vat, and unlike basic Minervois, the wine must be bottled at source, so cannot be sent off to a négociant elsewhere in France...


The Grapes

The Grapes

There are thousands of grape varieties contributing to a vast array of different wine styles with each variety having its own distinct flavours and characteristics. Varieties can be made uniquely to make a wine, in whch case the wine is known as a varietal, or collectively with other varities, when the wine is known as a blend. The soils and ‘terroirs’ in the Aude area are very varied, from Schist, Sandstone, Marl, Gravel, Pebbles, Limestone, to Granit and Alluvial soil; thus making many marvelous and different styles of wine. Also in this massive area are many different grape varieties, the reds include Carignon, Cinsault, Granache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The whites, Chardonnay, Granache blanc, Picpoul, Marsanne, Roussanne, Vermantino, Mauzac, Chenin and Clairette...
