DOMAINE DE FIGUEIRASSE

DOMAINE DE FIGUEIRASSE

Languedoc-Roussillon
Located in the Petite Camargue, between a former branch of the Rhône (active until the 16th century and currently called the Rhône Mort de Saint Roman) and the sea, the Domaine de Figueirasse gets its name from the fig trees farmed in the 19th century.   At the end of the 19th century, vines were decimated by phylloxera, and only the vines in the sandy soil resisted this disease.   They appeared in the Petite Camargue, due to the sandy terroir, and the Domaine de Figueirasse took on another dimension, thanks to viticulture.   At that time it was a property of about 20 hectares. The Saumade family, the owner since 1905, has undertaken an extension of the planted area, by levelling the terrain over 30 hectares more, doubling the capacity of the winery. Over time, Domaine de Figueirasse has equipped itself with modern wine-making equipment and today makes high quality Vins des Sables.

Vins des Sables wines are not limited to aromatic wines that can only be kept for a short period of time. This blend of Syrah (the predominant variety at 80%), Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is proof of this. Nice and ripe destemmed grapes, a strictly regulated vinification temperature and most importantly, a very long maceration period create this red...
