hectares of vineyard across 45 separate parcels. The diversity of soils and different ripening times allow Alexandre Favier, the current generation of the family to run the domaine, to co-ferment many of the grape varieties, in the time honoured Châteauneuf-du-Pape tradition. Harvest takes place by hand and the red wines are fermented for between 20-25 days in tank, whole bunch, before being aged in tank, concrete eggs, barrels and foudres. The white is fermented 70% in tank and 30% in Burgundy barrels.
