Chateau de La Liquière is one of the very best producers in the Faugères appellation of the Languedoc. Faugères is perhaps the most quality-orientated sub-region of the Languedoc, with a uniquely high proportion of sloping, schist-soiled vineyards. Bernard Vidal of Château de La Liquière is, in fact, President of the international group “Terroirs des Schistes”. The Vidal family have been growing vines since the 16th century and were instrumental in promoting the Languedoc and especially putting Faugères on the map, as sources of high quality wines in the 1960s.
This 60-hectare domaine is now fully-certified organic, with natural composts and vineyard treatments, and hand-harvesting the norm. Two wineries are on the estate: one traditionally equipped with underground vats and one more modern and functional. Both are gravity-fed, allowing for minimal disturbance of the wine and must. We're delighted to bring these groundbreaking wines into the UK, with our range encompassing both whites like Les Amandiers and reds, especially their top wine, Cistus.
