Domaine des Près Lasses


Sheltered by the foothills of the Cévennes, the final natural barrier before the Mediterranean, the Faugères vineyards are set on steep, south facing slopes, looking over the Beziers plain. It is in this beautiful area that two life long friends Jean Paul Ribeton and Denis Feigel began to realise their dream of making their own wine.

In 1999 they bought some old Carignan vineyard sites and a small cellar; in 2005 their holdings grew to today's magnificent 21 hectare property. Denis's son, Boris, has now taken over the winemaking after finishing his apprenticeships in Alsace with Humbrecht and Jean Schaetzel. Most of the vines average 30 years old, with some parcels nearing 50 years of age.

Denis’s famous Liverpudlian ancestors include Horace Walker, the first English mountaineer to reach the summit of Mount Elbrus and the Grandes Jorasses, and his sister Lucy Walker, the first female to climb the Matterhorn. Their passion and endurance lives on in Denis and Boris and in the Près-Lasses approach to winemaking, where biodynamic viticultural practices on these high schistous slopes result in wonderfully scented, supple reds.
