Marks and reviews
Founded in 2009, Chateau Fayat is the result of the merger between three properties: Prieurs de la Commanderie, La Commanderie de Mazeyres and Vieux Chateau Bourgneuf.
In 2016, the Fayat family carried out a rigorous study of the estate's soils to manage the vineyards in an ideal and appropriate manner, thus leading to the production of fine Pomerol wines.
Chateau Fayat watches over a 14-hectare terroir, of which 10.35 hectares are cultivated. The vines are 25 years old on average and are planted on deep Graves with brown soils composed of sand, silt and clay.
The vinification and aging
Following the harvest, the grapes are vinified in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged for 12 months, 80% in barrels (50% new, 50% first fill) and 20% in vats, amphorae, egg-shaped concrete tanks and wine globes.
Intense, the color is a beautiful red.
The nose mixes fruity (black fruits) and spicy fragrances.
The palate is seduced by its freshness, its fruity expression and its fleshy structure.
