Unlike many winemakers, Frederic Brouca is largely self-taught and took no formal courses on viticulture or winemaking.  His concept of growing grapes and winemaking focuses on reducing human intervention in the processes, and making it as natural as possible. Discover Fred's wines with this mixed case.

2 bottles x Domaine Frédéric Brouca Champs Pentus Blanc VDF 2020.  A Roussanne dominant blend with Grenache Blanc, grown organically on hillside vineyards in the outskirts of the Faugères appellation. After being hand-harvested, the grapes are destemmed and gently pressed. A long and slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks and neutral oak barrels (only 20% of the juice!), enhances the aromas and the flavour. 

Medium gold in color, on the nose the Champs Pentus Blanc is highly floral, with aromas of candied quince and beeswax. On the palate, it is light to medium bodied, but with lush texture and a honeyed aftertaste. It has a lovely fresh bitterness, apricot skin-like acidity and a playful and airy finish. 

Pairing suggestion: This Roussanne pairs nicely with flavoured dishes: thai roast chicken thighs or spicy squash and basil pasta.

2 bottles x Domaine Frédéric Brouca Champs Pentus VDF 2020. This single-vineyard blend of Grenache, Syrah & Carignan offers a perfect combination of balance and power. Rich dark fruit and savoury roasted meat notes pop from the glass. The flavours are vibrant with a rich symphony of red, blue and black fruits along with a peppery spice note and a long, clean finish. 

Pairing suggestionPair with hearty winter stews, grilled lamb chops or enjoy on its own in front of a cozy fire after a long day.

2 bottles x Domaine Frédéric Brouca Clos Sauveplane Faugères 2017.  This cuvée is from an isolated walled vineyard in the 'Sauveplane' lieu-dit, a plateau at the eastern limit of the Faugères appellation. It's made from twenty year old Mourvèdre vines and forty year old Syrah vines with both grapes co-fermented and aged for thirteen months in oak. A very natural beauty, the nose is loaded with black pepper, blue fruits and wild gamey notes. If you're a fan of dark yet elegant natural reds with finesse and charm, this wine over delivers.

Pairing suggestion: We recommend pairing it with bold meals: think French bistrot-inspired dishes, such as lentils, black pepper linguini with sausage and dandelion, or even a classic chicken satay!

About the Winery

Domaine Frédéric Brouca

Frédéric grew up in Normandy and met his Canadian wife Elaine at university in Lille, Northern France. They live a nomadic lifestyle (Canada, India, Singapore and USA) though Frédéric spends about half of his time in Faugères. Since early age, Frédéric had a calling for farming and the fierce desire to become a winegrower. After completing a Masters Degree in Finance in 2001, Frédéric went back to college for a Sommelier diploma and started his career as a Burgundy wine broker.

In late 2012, Frédéric and Elaine were fortunate to take over 25 acres of old vines in Faugères, organically farmed for twenty years and deeply rooted in schist soils.

2013 was the inaugural vintage for Domaine Frédéric Brouca. In his modest winery in the village of Laurens, Frédéric is creating a new vision for Faugères wines; fresh, vibrant and made without artifice. Nothing revolutionary, simply returning to our grandparent's ideology of farming and winemaking to craft 'Vins Vivants'. The Faugères Appellation is in the heart of Languedoc in the Hérault department. Here, winemaking dates back to the Greek times and was developed during the Roman Era. It wasn't until the early 1900's, however, that the wines became more widely known for its unique schist soils and moderate Mediterranean climate. These villages are heavily reliant on wine as an important part of their culture and economy.

The area is stunning with mountain views and close proximity to the Mediterranean Sea (20 miles / 30 kms). Faugères has a long history of responsible farming. It boasts the highest percentage of organic vineyards for any AOC in all of France with almost 50% of farmers making the choice.
