Humbert Freres


"Frédéric Humbert and his younger brother Emmanuel run this 6 ha domaine. Readers will notice that the vineyard holdings appear similar to both of the Dugat domaines and this is not by chance - the Humbert brothers are cousins of Claude and Bernard. If you're not familiar with the Humbert wines, the style is one that many readers will definitely like. There is a purity to the wines that is really lovely and while there is a nod toward the modern, some of the wines are also made with a significant percentage of stems. Overall, the wines are at once stylish and beautifully rendered with outstanding transparency.”
