Note : RVF 14,5/20
Une robe jaune paille devance un nez fait de beaucoup de délicatesse, dans un registre floral très délié et parfumé. Un blanc sobre et parfaitement défini, dans un profil épicé et sur la retenue. Un très joli Faugères à la matière tendue et dynamique, qui ravira à coup sûr les amateurs les plus exigeants !

About this wine : Le blanc est aromatique dans un registre assez simple.

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.
