Chateau Fargueirol has one of the longest histories in the Southern Rhone Valley. Or perhaps it is better to say that the Revoltier family dates back to 1340. The Revoltier family held the property in those days, but left the area, after the Revolution.
The Revoltier family did not come back to the region until 1974, when Joseph Revoltier purchased 10 hectares of land that needed to be completely re-cultivated, as the vines were left untended for years. The estate takes its name from its geographical location where their vines are planted in the Fargueirol lieu-dit.
Produced from a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault. The terroir is all rocks and stone soils. The wine is aged in mostly foudres, with 25% of the wine being aged in tank for 9 months before bottling.
Good to go with Christams Dinner, Morrocan chicken tagine with olives, lamb dolma (Turkish lamb-stuffed peppers), or smoky cauliflower steaks
