A terrific, limited supply is available from Château de Fayolle, made from only their best and oldest Merlot vines and aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. Both the vineyard and Château de Fayolle date from the 15th C, just after 300 years of English Plantagnet rule came to an end in Aquitaine. Ch. Fayolle’s limestone and chalk terroir overlooks the Dordogne River to the north and the Marmant River to the south. A lack of herbicide use and low yields maintain the quality of consummate winemaking by Jean Gazaniol. We believe this is one of the finest in the Bergerac appellation.
This is a very serious wine, comparable with right-bank Clarets at far higher prices – Extraordinary value for money.
