Lovers of Rhône wines will likely be familiar with the name Farge; Guy Farge crafted wines in this region for over 25 years.  His son Thomas has since taken the reins at the family winery making him the fifth generation Farge at the head of the estate.  With Thomas at the helm of the Domaine, he began the conversion to organic farming as well as incorporating practices of biodynamic farming which he finds important for the connection it gives him to the land.

The wines under Domaine Thomas Farge are originating from the estate and based on plot selections.  In order to understand better its terroirs, Thomas introduced a plot-by-plot approach in terms of viticulture that is then followed in the cellar.  Working along with the lunar calendar and mostly by hand and horse, Thomas has been working on reducing its vineyards input at the very
minimum. Treatments are limited to copper and sulfur. In the cellar, Thomas has introduced the use of raw concrete and is experimenting on vinifications without sulfur. Thomas is accompanied in his quest for excellence by Emmanuel Gagnepain, one of the leading consulting winemakers of the Rhone valley specializing in organic and biodynamic properties.  

Tasting Notes

Vibrant aromas of white blossoms, citrus, and minerals. Medium to full bodied and pleasing textural volume with vibrant acidity, white flowers, peach, subtle spice, matcha tea and crushed rocks.  The wine displays a great balance of fruit, floral and mineral notes that carry onto a long finish.  Enjoy with shellfish, chicken and cheeses.  

Method

Made from a selection of  50% Viognier with and equal split of Marsanne and Roussanne from single plot on a granitic plateau at an altitude of 400 meters on the edge of Saint Joseph near the Château de Chavagnac.  The grapes are hand harvested and the wine is made with minimal intervention.
