Chocolate, pencil shavings & dried thyme. Don’t miss this hidden gem.

Faugères is one of France’s hidden gems. Think Rhône-style smoothness combined with the complexity of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and the value for money that has made Languedoc so popular. This robust red blend has spent 12 months in mixture of different sized seasoned oak barrels.

The Vidal family has been making wine here since the 1700s. Jean Vidal, the father of the present owner, Bernard Vidal, helped to create in the early 1950s, along with his brother Lucien and a third winemaker, the VDQS (Vin Délimité de Qualité Supérieure, or “Delimited Wine of Superior Quality” in English) that preceded the AOC Faugères Red wine appellation that was put in place in 1982 (white wines received an AOC in 2005).
