History The establishment of Château Fougas dates from the 18th century. A charming watercolor by a surveyor of the time shows the Château surrounded by its land in one piece, where the vines already appear.
Philosophy “For our wines we want an expression of Terroir, we seek the violet rather than the tar and the refined more than the concentrate… Far from fashion but close to the earth we are attached to the authenticity which gives fine sweet wines and elegant, rich in beautiful aromas of spices and fruit… ”.
Vilification Château Fougas " sulfur Free" is a natural wine without any addition either in winemaking or during its aging in stainless steel tanks under temperature control., Which gives it exceptional aromas of fruit and flowers

How to serve 18°C decant in a carafe with aeration when it is young… Mature, bring it to room temperature for an hour or two, decant without aeration.
Food and wine matches Young with braised red meat. Mature on little game animals in a sauce.
Our advice: The sulfur-free wine is worked without any oxygen supply. Before consuming it must therefore be aerated for a long time by decanting it several times
