Domaine de Cebene

Brigitte Chevalier came to Faugères to make wine in her own, highly individual way. In a short space of time, her organically farmed estate of 11 hectares has established itself as a leader within its chosen appellation and a highly rated name within South of France winemaking circles.

She hunted down and bought the parcels that met her objectives, choosing them on the basis of the quality of their terroir and their grape varieties, their exposure (north-facing, for balanced wines) and altitude (300 metres, in the foothills of the Massif Central), in Faugères, in the heart of the Haut-Languedoc Parc Naturel.

She wants to capture the style and delicate flavor of cooler-appellation wines in the Languedoc. Domaine de Bénène terroirs, combined with deep-rooted vines, very low yields, grapes hand-picked at optimum ripeness and careful vinification give Brigitte’s organic wines a unique profile.

Domaine Cébène‘s name refers to the Languedoc goddess who inspired the area’s name Cévènnes.
