CHATEAU DES PEYREGRANDESFamily winegrowing of 25 ha since 5 generations, Marie-Geneviève Boudal-Benezech and her sons perpetuates the tradition and the destiny of the Winegrowing since 1995. Quality orders the control of our vines, our estate is qualified under l' Agriculture raisonnée. The wines are very typified “Faugères”: a great richness aromatic, much of structure, large smoothnesses of tannins. Our goal is to transmit to the consumer the typicity of this appellation, by working out wines resulting from assembly and in constant research from balance between the powerfull and the smoothness. In fact, as in a work of art, we try to transmit through our products, the love and the passion which we have for our area, our vines and our wine.
The winegrowing estate is an exploitation qualified with the title of the agriculture reasoned, according to the step Terra Vitis and in biological conversion.

Superb red Faugères Prestige 2016, 40% Syrah, 40% Carignan and 20% Mourvèdre, it is intense on the nose as in the mouth, of a nice concentration, the nose of cherry, slightly spicy on the mouth, perfect on a rind of beef tenderloin or rabbit stew.
Formidable Red Faugères Marie-Laurencie 2015, 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre, matured in stainless steel vats, it is robust, with nuances of small fruits (redcurrant and griotte), rich mouth, typical of its terroir, a wine that requires a spicy cuisine such as, for example, a shoulder of lamb stuffed with green olives or a pork tenderloin crusted with mushrooms.
Remarkable again, the Faugères Château des Peyregrandes white 2018, Roussanne 60%, Marsanne 40% (primary era, classical schist soils of the Faugérois-carbonifère, altitude: 200 to 300 m on the Cévennes mountains, facing due south, facing the sea), of a glossy golden coat, very finely spicy, subtle and suave with nuances of fresh fruit, a very elegant wine, with a frank and persistent mouth, sweet, and a great aromatic persistence.
The Château des Peyregrandes red 2017, Syrah 50%, Grenache 50%, raised in stainless steel vats, has a nose of violet evolving towards ripe fruits, powerful and velvety mouth.
Refreshing Château des Peyregrandes rosé 2018, Grenache 50%, Syrah 40%, Mourvèdre 10%, manual vintage, vinification by bleeding, then stabilization and fermentation with thermo-regulation, a part vinified in oak barrels, develops fruit scents (apricot, peach), well balanced.
And still this beautiful red Faugères Charlotte 2015, a large, dense wine, with a nose dominated by blackcurrant and leather, with both ripe and powerful tannins, that fills the mouth well, not yet at maturity.
