Falfas is a historic château in the Bordeaux vineyards, since the first mentions of its name date back to the 17th century. The building is full of winks referring to the successive owners, evolving and metamorphosing according to the evolution of architectural styles over the centuries.
At the end of the 1980s Véronique Cochran acquired the vineyard and began the conversion to biodynamic viticulture. Daughter of François Bouchet, one of the creators of the Biodyvin label, she applies advanced biodynamic methods which, from the very first years, bring the terroir back to life.
"The transformations were visible very quickly and impressively," she tells us during a visit to her farm. "The soil regained its balance, richness and life in the first year. A return of biodiversity was also immediately observed. And the quality of the wines has only increased.
Falfas is therefore a symbol of the expression of the Bordeaux terroir with wines of exceptional quality and freshness, even in the most challenging vintages, which have nothing to envy to some of the Médoc Grands Crus Classés.
