more details...



Created in 2007 by Pierre Gaillard, best known for his eponymous vineyards in St Joseph and Cote Rotie. In Faugeres, the steep hillsides are at high altitude with the Cevennes in the background and a panorama extending from the Pyrenees through to Montpellier.

The white wines are especially good here although the flagship red, Transhumance, has a whiff of Côte Rôtie about it (not altogether unsurprising given who makes it) and is rather good, especially given it is well under half the price. Transhumance refers to the moving livestock between lowlands in winter and highlands in summer, a common practise in this part of France.
