In 1986, Charly Faisant inherited 3 hectares of vineyard from his grandfather in the prime Tautavel region. Since then, he has been buying up tiny plots of the best land as he's found them. Sadly many growers in this rugged, bare region have given up on their vines – it's such hard work and yields are so tiny. However, the wines can be sublime. His vineyards lie between the Mediterranean sea and the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, in the very south of France. It's a very hot and arid landscape, wild, with a wonderful aroma of the herbal garrigue. Tautavel is not only known for its great wines, but also for the 'Man of Tautavel', the bones of which, found in a cave, date back 450,000 years. Despite its 14%, it's an elegant, mellow wine.
