Christian Favier, the father, recently handed over the reins to his son Alexandre who, at 25 years old, seems too young to be making such impressive wines. The estate has been classified Chateauneuf du Pape in the Sabon-Favier family for several generations.
|Size of the vineyards:
||- Manual grape harvest with selective sorting
- Sustainable agriculture
||14,100 cases per year
||The estate is located in a very stony part of the Chateauneuf du Pape area, where you can find the famous “galets roulés”. A large part of the vineyard is located on the famous plateau de Cabrieres near the Chateau Montredon. Rolled pebbles (limestone) soil.
