Ten years after she settled (2007) at Domaine de Cébène (11 ha), Brigitte Chevalier has fully succeeded in her wager: to reveal the purity, complexity and tannic finesse of her schist terraces in the northern part of the Faugères appellation, through a gentle and attentive viticulture without artifice. "Like Clos Manou in the Médoc" as M. Quarin wrote. Promoted one star in the 2020 guide Revue du Vin de France "Cébène is now part of the elite of Faugères".

"Felgaria" is the estate's top-of-the-range cuvée: 50% mourvèdre on the south-facing heights, supplemented with north-facing syrah and grenache, matured in 500-litre barrels. Pulpy, silky, magnificent balance between richness and softness, a cuvée of great class, "one of the best southern wines I know" for Mr. Quarin.

    "Les Bancèls" is a blend of the 4 grape varieties of the estate: syrah/grenache/carignan/mourvèdre, on schist. A melting wine, with an intense and racy fruitiness, bravo !
