New book trumpets Faugères

A new book by Rosemary George MW explores the “infinite variety” of the Languedoc appellation of Faugères.

faugeres-wine-bookPublished earlier this year by Infinite Ideas, the book takes a look at the different terroirs of Faugères, the grape varieties grown there and some of the key winemakers in the region.

As George explained on her blog the book came about not just because of her love of the region but also because Infinite Ideas has, “happily realised that since the demise of the Faber series of wine books, to which I contributed three titles, there is a big gap in the market, and they want to fill it.”

In her introduction to the book George relates how she first fell for the wines in the late 1980s, “and I have never been able to resist them ever since.”

Despite its relatively compact size she describes how, “the variety is infinite, prompted by the human hand and the perceptible differences between the different villages.”

Enthused by the whites and rosés she argues that the “distinctive freshness” of all the wines of Faugéres is what places them “among the finest of the Languedoc”.

The Wines of Faugères is available on Amazon or direct from Infinite Ideas, here.

As mentioned by George, Infinite Ideas has taken up Faber’s wine book mantle and launched a new range of wine books this summer under the banner ‘Classic Wine Library’.

So far the range includes books covering: Spirits, Champagne, biodynamic wine, Austria, Port & the Douro, Cognac, Sherry and Madeira. The authors of these titles include Richard Mayson (Port and Madeira), Julian Jeffs (Sherry), Nicholas Faith (Cognac) and Monty Waldin (biodynamics).
