RESPECT FOR THE TERROIR

The quality of the terroir was the main criterion guiding Silvio Denz when he was considering an investment in a "grand cru" vineyard.

He sees terroir as an aspect of heritage, an asset that leaves no room for improvisation. He and director Alain Dourthe-Larrère are therefore very careful to treat the unique soils with respect. Some are traceable to the Lower Eocene era and they need the greatest possible care and a vineyard that is optimised to ensure that the wine is the best possible expression of the terroir. This is especially true of the great hillside terroirs of Château Péby Faugères and of the plateau and slopes of Château Faugères.
