MEANING OF THE NAME
EXPERIENCE
Before being the name of a wine, « Fauquet » was
the name of a family. Louise Fauquet brought
land from Gigondas to the Domain by her
marriage with Mr Roger Combe. That is why, she
transmitted to the vineyard a second prestigious
appellation : Gigondas. We wanted to pay tribute
to this union and to the previous generations.
