The story of Mas Olivier began in 1982, which also happens to be the date that Faugeres gained its AOP status. The landscape, its terroir and the people who have shaped its history however, are far older.

Back in 1959 a group of like-minded wine growers, with a vision to create a cooperative dedicated to the production of high-quality wines joined forces: today the co-op produces more than half of Faugères bottled wines and is well regarded for its quality. Vineyards facing the Mediterranean sea but located at 300 metres above sea level enable Faugères to benefit from the heat of long summers, yet with heavier spring and autumn rainfall, and cooler temperatures than elsewhere in the Languedoc. A philosophy of ‘lutte raisonnée’ and where possible organic principles, this compelling Languedoc winery offers wines that are generous, with plentiful ripe fruit, value and character.

These 100% schist soils are located on the foothills of the Cévennes, looking to the South. They benefit from abundant sunshine combined with cool summer nights, to create wines with elevated expression.

Fermentation happens in concrete tanks, followed by lees contact and battonage for the next three months to give greater texture.

This wine has expressive notes of ripe melon, orange blossom and lively citrus. Harmonious, balanced and finishing with an appealing splash of acidity.

Delicious with roast chicken, grilled fish and Mediterranean vegetables
