The wines of Domaine Faury have a rustic elegance that have charmed us ever since we first tasted them. Every method used in the winemaking process encourages the grape towards greatness with the ultimate respect for its fragility.
Lionel’s style can be best described “as relaxed winemaking”, but there’s a real attention to detail here, and nothing is done in haste. excess extraction is avoided with a high purity and the limited use of oak . The wines are unfined and only lightly filtered before bottling, resulting in wines that are brimming with classic Northern Rhone authentic aromas and flavours.
Lionel, who took over the domain from his father in 2006, is determined to push his wines in to the front rank of the Northern Rhône’s top wines and its time that as many of you get the chance to sample his wines to confirm that he is indeed succeeding. He still works side by side with his father who himself took over the domain in 1979 when it still sold peaches and cherries, and the bulk of its wines to the local clientele. They have now grown the domain in size and expanded sales to an international client base.
