AN ELITE ESTATE
CHÂTEAU JEAN FAURE
Grand Cru Classé
SAINT-EMILION

At the very top of the Bordeaux wine ranking system, Château Jean Faure’s terroir is the same as that of the greatest crus classés of Saint–Emilion : Château Cheval Blanc and Château Figeac.

Neighboring Pomerol and anchored firmly in clay soils, the château exhibits a peaceful silhouette.

A UNIQUE SITUATION
A stone’s throw away from cheval blanc

Less than 100 meters from Château Cheval Blanc, bordered on its left side by Château La Dominique, and behind by Château l’Evangile, the 18-hectare square vineyard forms a magic enclave, where nature has once again taken the stage.

Château Jean Faure shares with its most prestigious peers, the force offered by clay-laden terroirs, where Cabernet Franc draws exceptional energy.

THE JEAN FAURE STYLE
Revelation, birth and affirmation
of a Grand Cru Classe

Underpinned by perfectly preserved well-ripened fruit, Château Jean Faure confidently unfolds a slender and sophisticated structure, studded with freshness, supported by just the right amount of relief and energy.

In its youth, this wine displays an imposing yet refined base, firm tannins, juicy flesh and vibrant fruit, evoking intense floral and black berry notes. These features fit perfectly together with age. As a result, this wine asserts itself with refinement and elegance, gradually brought about by harmonious maturing techniques.

A SCHOOL OF EXPERIMENTS, WITHOUT COMPROMISE
The choice of going green

Organic farming is demanding, and when associated with the influence of the Atlantic, it requires consistency and imagination.

This is however, the difficult path, taken from the very beginning by Olivier Decelle at the estate.
