CHATEAU FABAS

CHATEAU FABASTo the North-East of Carcassonne, in the central zone of Minervois, soil “Balcons of Aude”, this medieval strengthened farm is a winegrowing of only one holding of 158 ha with 58 ha of vines including 45 planted in Minervois. It is on this winegrowing with the multiple Mediterranean scents that Roland Augustin, helped of his two sons Yann and Loïc, mature with a care meticulous person of the intense, complex and expressive wines. For better understanding the specificity of each vintage of Château Fabas, it is necessary to know of it the origins, type of vines and the type of maturing. The Winegrowing is pressed on a decoration of hillocks exposed to full midday, witness of the old relief to the very strong slopes where no culture is possible, only the pines of Alep and the Mediterranean vegetation is clutched on the red grounds of the hills. The vines are spread out over two levels over a reversed relief, the high terraces with the oldest grounds and the low terraces with the youngest grounds. The grounds are argilo-limestones, in the tops, the flint levels on the terraces, and the sandstone on the slopes.
Superb Minervois Serbolles rouge 2008, vinified after one day a cold maceration, before alcoholic fermentation begins, all this care gives a structured great wine, of a great complexity of aromas (musk, leather…), with these notes of smoked and spices, with tannins powerful but delicate, harmonious, of guard. Remarkable 2007, fleshy, finely spiced, full and structured, with harmonious tannins, with this mouth of blackberry and violet, délicieusement molten and powerful at the same time. Minervois Serbolles blanc 2011 (bases of white Vermentino and Grenache), all in charm, with the green reflections with aromas of nut and citrus fruits, a wine which combines elegance and powerfull, of a great persistence, where roundness and distinction join. The 2010 are finely having a nice bouquet, complex, which associates freshness and structure, with the lemon-flavoured nose, refined, all in mouth. Minervois Le Mourral 2008, is a wine fleshy, with the nose of violet and blackberry, fleshy, with prune and pepper notes. Taste also the IGP Syrah/petit verdot 2011, dense, all in aromas, ideal on an hare terrine, very succeeded like Sauvignon 2011, marked by its type of vine, where freshness prevails.
