A Vineyard with Soul | Domaine de Cebene

Domaine de Cébène, a vineyard with a sense of place. 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.

Brigitte 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.

CebeneDomaine de Cebene strives to show the purity and the complexity of its wine aromas, the finesse of its tannins, which is a true showcase of its schist terroirs. 12 years of experiment with this rock-type outcrop has helped with more precise vinification. Vines are unlike any others, whose very deep roots are in perfect symbiosis with the natural biodiversity, producing resilient vines and fuller grapes.

Brigitte’s judicious choice of terroirs, combined with deep-rooted vines, very low yields, grapes hand-picked at optimum ripeness and careful vinification gave her wines a very unique profile. Their biodynamic wines are fully hand-crafted, with a precise selection of the right blends of grape varieties, expressing elegance, complexity, freshness and a certain persistence.
