Domaine Faury Story
“Domaine Faury is one of the region’s most artisanal producers. When Philippe Faury took over the domaine in 1979, the family was selling wine, peaches and cherries, and the bulk of their clientele was local. Over the years, Philippe increased their holdings to over 11 hectares and began to sell internationally. He shared his savoir faire with his son, Lionel. Since 2006, Lionel has taken over the reins, though father and son still work side by side. Every method they use encourages the grape towards greatness with the ultimate respect for its fragility.” Kermit Lynch Importer
The domaine consists of 16 hectares of vines, half of them producing reds from the St.-Joseph appellation, with the rest divided among St.-Joseph whites, Condrieu, Côte-Rôtie and Vin de Pays. The domaine currently produces more than 5,800 cases annually.
John Livingstone-Learmouth, preeminent author on Rhone wines and author of “The Wines of the Northern Rhône”. “there is a group of domaines whose wines reflect what I consider to be the beauty of the vineyard and the cellar in one bottle. I call this group the STGT – the Soil to Glass Transfer Group. Their wines reflect a sense of place, or terroir, the expression of their sector and also the vintage style delivered by the year`s weather. Simplicity of approach and purity of flavor are features, and the vigneron`s hand is present with the lightest of touches.
Domaine Faury: JLT “This is a reliable domaine for those who like wines with personality. Some of the wines here are STGT, and pure – notably the Condrieu Tradition. There is generally relaxed winemaking, not given to excess extraction.”
