Critic Review

Decanter Magazine: 90Pts (2018 vintage)

"This is a concentrated style, with lemon and lime alongside mango. It’s powerful on the palate with sappy, mouthcoating flavour and a long finish that has a touch of citrus oil and lime pastille. A little bitter twist on the finish brings freshness. Not the most elegant Saint-Péray of the vintage, but plenty of interest, featuring a touch of raspberry on the finish, unexpectedly. Grapes grown on clay limestone, fermented with indigenous yeasts, matured mostly in vat, with a small proportion spending 2 months in new oak."

About the Producer

A family story that began in 1920, when Henri Farge bought 12 hectares of vines from a Norman general. He grew the fruits for sale in cooperative winery, just as his son and grandson André Farge did with and after him.

With his knowledge and ambitions, Guy Farge then realised his life project as the culmination of the path traced by his ancestors, combining his work as a craftsman, his passion to produce quality wines with respect for nature and tradition, and his taste for sharing and conviviality. In 2018, Thomas, Guy's eldest son, took over the Domaine. Quite naturally Thomas made the choice of a transition to organic farming.

The vineyard of Domaine Farge now has 20 hectares of vines, spread along the Rhone valley on four appellations: Saint-Joseph, Cornas, Saint-Péray and Condrieu. As the estate consists mainly of steep terraced plots, the work of the vine is exclusively manual, from pruning to harvesting. Looking for a more environmentally friendly work, they have chosen to convert to organic farming. In order to extend this philosophy in the cellar, they work the wines following the lunar calendar and limiting the use of inputs. As good craftsman of the terroir, they are committed to presenting unique wines reflecting the plots and their philosophy.
