The Domain des Hauts Châssis is located in the south of Crozes-Hermitage appellation The surface of the Domain is 17 hectares.
We have been in organic farming since 2017.
The terroir is of the Alpine diluvium type (fluvio-glacial alluvium), it is made up of large pebbles which accumulate heat throughout the day to release it during the night. Franck Faugier took over the family Domain and has been vinifying since 2003. If the vat room is modern (stainless steel vats), it is respect for tradition that drives the spirit of the Domaine. From the vine to the cellar, it is the respect of the fruit and of the vine that we support : work of the ground, supervised control, grape harvest in green, manual stripping, manual grape harvest, picking off, treading during the wine making and a controlled maturing in order to offer you all the pleasure of the fruit and the complexity of the Syrah. Today the estate produces 3 vintages in red Crozes-Hermitage and one in white.
