Château La Liquiere
Location: Languedoc, France
This estate was at the forefront of promoting the Languedoc as a source of high quality wines in the 1960s, and indeed was one of the producers that really put the appellation of Faugères on the map. Faugères is arguably the most quality-orientated subregion of the Languedoc, and is blessed with a high proportion of sloping, schist-soiled vineyards, producing reds that combine intensity and finesse.
Château La Liquière remains right at the forefront and is regarded as one of the very best producers of this high-quality appellation. This 60 hectare domaine is now fully certified organic and still run by the Vidal family.
