Château Fargueirol basks in its exceptional location in the north of the Appellation, surrounded by vines at slight altitude with a splendid view of Mont Ventoux, the Rhône river and the castle of Châteauneuf du Pape. Château Fargueirol is one of Châteauneuf du Pape's oldest estates. It was mentioned as early as the 17th Century in the archives of the village. It then belonged to the Revoltier family, who owned under the direct jurisdiction of the Archbishop of Avignon, a farm surrounded by vineyards, the birthplace of the present domain. The Revoltier family left Fargueirol during the French revolution and settled in Courthezon, and nearly 200 years passed, before the family was back.
The wine has a youthful pale green colour. the nose is complex and aromatic with added richness from barrel fermentation. Aromas of lime, apricots and peaches and undertones of accacia.
