Domaine des Prés LassesWebsite : www.pres-lasses.com
Sheltered by the foothills of the Cévennes, the final natural barrier before the Mediterranean, the Faugères vineyards are set on steep, south-facing schist slopes, looking over the Béziers plain. Boris Feigel is responsible for the winemaking here. He has worked with Humbrecht in Alsace and – although not officially biodynamic or organic – his approach is very sensitive to his raw materials, with use of organic fertiliser, ploughing, short-pruning and very little spraying of synthetic products in the vineyard. The small size of his new winery allows him to maintain an immediate overview of all the wines from all the plots he works with and lavish on them the care and attention they deserve.
Other wines by this producer
Subtly spicy, with ripe red fruit aromas and flavours. Beautifully soft and generous texture with silky-fine tannins and characteristic Southern French 'garrigue' flavours - thyme, rosemary, marjoram and other wild herbs.
Deep ruby in the glass with garrigue, violet, and spice notes on the nose. Elegant, clean and pure, it coats the palate with dense, fine tannins and vibrant fruit. A well-proportioned, mature, full-bodied wine, with a long spicy finish.
