Figuière is located in La Londe-les-Maures between Marseille and Nice with vineyards that lie just a few hundred meters from the Mediterranean Sea. “There’s a five-degree difference in temperature from our vineyards to those of the interior,” says Magali, “the freshness found in our wines is very singular to the La Londe region.”
Alain Combard purchased the property in 1992 after discovering its cool coastal climate and unique schist soils. “The schist in La Londe seduced my father,” says Alain’s daughter Magali, “schist and the sea make our style.” Over a period of 25 years, the Combard Family grew Figuière to its current size of 210 acres.
