Les Premières is a complex wine, with aromas of pepper, liquorice, garrigue, smoke, toast, coffee, joined by a good minerality after breathing. The entry is supple, with a fleshy and creamy texture, supported by very ripe fruits, and a long finish of roasting...

About the vineyard : Ce domaine majeur est l’une des deux adresses incontournables de Faugères. Vignerons discrets et avisés, Jean-Michel Alquier et son épouse s’attachent depuis vingt ans à valoriser un vignoble dominé par de vieilles syrahs issues de sélections massales – parmi les premières plantées en Languedoc dans les années 1960 par le père, Gilbert – complétées de mourvèdre et de grenache. Ce dernier est dominant dans la cuvée La Maison Jaune, qui se déploie en finesse et suavité. La syrah reprend le dessus dans Les Bastides d’Alquier, grand vin à la plénitude harmonieuse, capable d’évoluer avec bonheur sur plus de quinze ans. Un hectare de marsanne et de roussanne donne naissance à un blanc élevé en cuve, qui allie complexité et gourmandise. Le travail singulier accompli ici à l’écart des modes a permis au domaine d’accéder au cercle restreint des deux-étoiles de la région.

Rating and review of M. MAXIME B. Published on 03/10/2018
Ouvert une bouteille pour goûter, on sent la jeunesse et la fougue. Un peu trop, ce n'est pas un vin de "jeune fille", à retester dans quelques années
Rating and review of M. GREGORY V. Published on 02/08/2017
Un tres beau vin ! Une belle attaque forte et epicé qui se poursuit par la rondeur que l'on espère. Des notes de fruits rouges, d'epices. Une belle reussite !
Rating and review of M. PASCAL P. Published on 09/04/2017
Belle vivacité d'entrée, aucune lourdeur, franchise à tous les étages. Belle amplitude en bouche, peu de tanins mais une structure intéressante. Sur une bavette aux échalotes grillées, un accord mémorable
