Château Fougas Organic

Terroir Surface : 22 Ha.

Hydro-wind colluvials composed of ferruginous clays smectite type on a limestone bedrock.

Grape Varieties  Merlot 60% - Cabernet Sauvignon 40%

History Owner : Jean-Yves Bechet.

The introduction of the Château Fougas dates from the XVIII century. A lovely watercolor from a surveyor of the period shows the Château surround by his land in a single piece, where already appear the vines.

Philosophy « For our wines, we want to have a Terroir expression, we are seeking for the violet rather than the tar and the refined more than the concentrate… Far from the trends but close to the land, we are attached to the authenticity who gives soft fine and elegant wines, full of beautiful spices and fruits aromas… ».

Vinification Careful sorting of the grapes when they arrive to the vat. Piecemeal vinification with a Burgundian cap-punching method. Into stainless steel vat under temperature control.

Vineyard Certified in Organic and Biodynamic farming

      “When the grapes themselves have a moderate concentration, there is no need to pursue structure. Rather, it is best to simply showcase the existing fruitiness with frankness and grace, while respecting the terroir as much as possible, this is precisely the charm that a small wine should possess. This biodynamic wine is exactly the style I am describing, exhibiting a refreshing and gentle character in the vintage of 2022. Sometimes, simplicity is also a kind of beauty”
