Les Crus Faugeres ( Ermengaud )
France - Languedoc-Roussillon

Les Crus Faugères is located in the heart of the Faugères Appellation, in the Languedoc Roussillon. 

It is a major player, as it is the only cave cooperative in the area. They manage 900 hectares (2,223 acres) of vineyards, out of the 2,000 hectares (4,940 acres) of Faugeres planted. Let's say that 1 bottle of Faugeres out of 2 is made in this cellar!

Faugeres was recognized as an exclusive quality terroir in 1955, when it was classified as VDQS (Vin De Qualité Supérieure).
Because of the specific soil type and the uniqueness of the terroir, Faugeres became its own AOC in 1982.
