Some of the vines on the estate belonged to my great grandparents, my grandparents and my parents.
These vines are the beginning of the story.
For the oldest ones, they are counting their 70th year, worked with different methods according to the generations to continue today to work as close as possible to nature and respectful of human.
It is thanks to these family lands and my attachment to this exceptional territory that I was able to create the cellar and the estate of today : Château Faiteau.
"The process and the definition of the rules began in the 1980s thanks to a handful of winegrowers and winemakers, and led to the recognition of the first communal appellation area in the Languedoc in February 1999.
The first Roman settlers planted vines on this territory, and in 1069, "Lavineira", which means "place planted with vines", was already mentioned as the name of the village. The following years confirmed the exceptional potential of the La Livinière terroir, dominated by limestone, sandstone, sandstone marl, schist and quaternary terraces.
The representatives of the forty cellars that make up the La Livinière cru have got into the habit of meeting regularly to taste their respective wines and to elect the vintages that seem to them, at the moment, the most emblematic of the cru. These bottles form what they call the Livinage, the annual selection of the wines of the appellation. And this is the challenge taken up each year, by juries of journalists, sommeliers and winemakers, through a selection of vintages which will be, for a year, the ambassadors of the cru.
The result of the Livinage 2021, presents the cuvée Gaston 2017 as one of the ambassadors of the cru.
