Winery Description

Leaving her native Bordeaux and the employ of Jean-Luc Thunevin, Brigitte Chevalier acquired a group of vineyards in a remote part of Faugères centered around a ziggurat-shaped hill at an elevation of 320m above sea level. This location affords a range of exposures from north-facing, to full southern exposure. Underneath these sites is the classic soil of Faugères – schist. Soil, exposure and climate, combine to allow Brigitte to makes wines that suit her palate, what she calls, “Vin du Nord in the South.”Brigitte is meticulous in her farming and winemaking. Her vineyards are certified organic and everything is harvested by hand and transported in small bins. Brigitte prefers native yeast, and whole cluster fermentations as well as aging in tank. All wines are balanced, rich and soft, with abundant fruit and spiciness, complex structures, fine tannins and hints that they will continue to evolve over a number of years. In choosing a name for her Domaine, Brigitte took as inspiration an ancient goddess of the celtic tribes of the region, Cébenna, mentioned by Julius Cesar in the first century BC.
