"Always considered among the best, the 1867 edition of Feret’s 'Bordeaux and its Wines' already classified Falfas one the four Grand Cru of the Côtes de Bourg.

"One no longer counts the number of medals and prizes awarded to the wines of Falfas in national and international competitions in Bordeaux, Paris, Brussels and London."

— Bernard Ginestet, “le Grand Bernard des Vins”

La Revue des Vins de France We are impressed by the balance of Château Falfas, the best expression of a Côtes de Bourg in a living wine. Falfas 2012 is a unique expression brought forward by a nose focused on dark berries and red fruits. First come the blackcurrant and blackberry aromas, quickly followed by floral notes. Full-bodied on the palate, the texture lays on a silky tannin backbone as well as on the expression of a fresh ripe fruit.
