Our boutique vineyard, Château du Faure Haut Normand, lies in the village of Saillans overlooking Fronsac known as the ‘Tuscany of Bordeaux’ where we offer a unique combination of winemaking and wine selling. We bring together the knowledge of winemaking with extensive personal contacts within the Bordeaux wine trade to deliver a new approach to selling wine including buying wine en primeur.
Our online shop provides the opportunity to buy red wines from Bordeaux that we believe are not only excellent examples of region’s reputation but offer excellent value for money. Believe it or not we have also sourced some amazing white wines from Bordeaux, something the region is less famous for.
Château du Faure Haut Normand 2018
Official Tasting Notes:
Deep layers of red fruit with powerful yet refined tannins the 2018 vintage promises to be one of the best full stop. A damp autumn followed by a long hot dry summer that lasted well into October resulted in a harvest that whilst small was beautifully rich and strong. Early barrel tastings suggested a well structured wine and the decision to put it into one year old French oak, rather than new, was taken to ensure a softer, gentler wine without too much weighty wood.

Trois Le Faure – 2017
Official Tasting Notes:
The second wine of Château du Faure Haut Normand, Trois Le Faure is 90% merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and provides a gentle, rounded wine that is typical of the beautiful wines made our winemakers and oenologues, the Rolland family. Yields were down 60% as a result of the frosts in April but the vines that survived did so in excellent order. The summer was not as hot as usual but the wine that resulted is fine balanced red dominated by blackberry rather than plum fruit of a more typical of Fronsac merlot; this will be drinking perfectly by 2019/20.
