The Château Fayat embodies a deep family tradition, a passion for viticulture and an exceptional terroir, giving birth to wines of outstanding quality. Located in the Pomerol appellation, in the heart of the Bordeaux wine region, this Domaine winery is testament to the Fayat family's ongoing commitment to excellence and authenticity.
The history of Château dates back several generations, when the Fayat family acquired the property with an ambitious vision to produce world-class wines. Since then, the Fayat family has preserved the region's heritage while infusing a new energy and contemporary approach to viticulture.
Terroir is the mainstay of the exceptional quality of its wines. The vineyards cover around 8 hectares, mainly planted with Merlot, which dominates the grape varieties. Located on Pomerol's characteristic soils, a blend of clay and gravel, the vines benefit from ideal exposure and climatic conditions conducive to optimal grape ripening.
The Fayat family places great importance on sustainability and respect for the terroir. Viticultural practices are carried out responsibly, using environmentally friendly methods and minimizing the use of chemicals. Their commitment to preserving the terroir guarantees the exceptional quality of the grapes harvested.
Harvesting is carried out by hand, enabling careful selection of the ripest, healthiest bunches. This attention to detail ensures that only the highest quality grapes are used to make the wines.
The winemaking process is a combination of tradition and modernity. Grapes are vinified with care, using precise techniques that pRéservent the pure expression of the fruit. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, allowing precise temperature control and thus preserving freshness and aromatic complexity.
The wines are aged in French oak barrels, where they acquire structure, depth and elegance. This aging phase allows the wines of Château Fayat to develop their potential and gain in complexity.
Pomerol, famous for its high-quality wines and unique terroir, offers ideal conditions for growing noble grape varieties such as Merlot. The location of Domaine in this prestigious region contributes greatly to the richness and complexity of the wines produced.

Description Château Fayat 2016.
With its sublime deep, brilliant red color, the wine soon expresses an intense, complex nose. At first, small red and black berries appear: blueberry, blackcurrant, redcurrant. After aeration, more depth can be felt thanks to an empyreumatic dimension combining notes of roasting and light smokiness. The palate is not to be outdone either. Fleshy from the outset, it expresses power and elegance throughout. Perfectly chiselled tannins underline this fine balance and carry us through to a lovely woody finish.
