Guide Hachette 2019 : two stars for La Lumière !

La Lumière 2015 in AOP Corbières has won two stars in the Guide Hachette des vins 2019 !

This cuvee is part of the Atelier Prestige collection, the jewel in Les Vignobles Foncalieu’s crown, a range of four outstanding wines labelled with the three iconic appellations of Saint-Chinian, Corbières and Minervois and the PGI Coteaux d’Ensérune.

Starting in 2001, Les Vignobles Foncalieu’s head viticulturalist Gabriel Ruetsch led a project to identify the finest vineyard sites. The vines are farmed sustainably, each vineyard is strictly selected with a cap on yields of 20hl/ha, winemaking specifications are stringent and the fruit is sorted automatically then one grape at a time by hand, for example. The defining feature of this super premium range of wines is its focus on people: the spotlight is shone on the fifteen winegrowers who produce the must, alongside the agronomists and winemaking teams at Foncalieu.

Each of the small-batch labels with their 7,000 numbered bottles has a different name: ‘La Lumière’  is a nod to the sunshine of the Corbières ! You will also find ‘L’Apogée’ (alluding to the elevation of vineyard sites in Saint-Chinian), ‘Le Lien’ (because the two wine growers who created this Minervois appellation wine are great friends) and ‘Les Illustres’, as a tribute to the 8 illustrious wine growers in the PGI Coteaux d’Ensérune area who crafted the wine.
