The Peby Faugeres comes from a sector of Faugeres of over 20 acres where the vines are 45 years of age on average. In 2009 the yields were only 18 hectoliters per hectare.

In 2009 the yields were only 18 hectoliters per hectare. This 100% Merlot cuvee was impressive from barrel but is even more remarkable from bottle. One of the superstars of the vintage this dense opaque purple wine displays notes of blueberry liqueur intermixed with graphite pen ink licorice incense and white flowers. Deep and full-bodied with a boatload of tannin and glycerin as well as incredible texture and length this is a wine of first-growth quality from St.-Emilion that should be cellared for a good 7-8 years and then drunk over the following 25-30. It finished at around 15% natural alcohol and there are about 1000 cases of it. 98+

This is gorgeous featuring a torrent of raspberry and blackberry fruit that blazes along thanks to riveting acidity that just won't quit. Loads of spice black tea and perfectly integrated toast notes hold sway on the very sleek finish for now but this is really stunning for its beam of pure fruit. Wow. Best from 2015 through 2030.

Exotic aromas of crushed berries toasted oak vanilla bean. Full-bodied with a wonderful depth of fruit and ultra-velvety tannins. This is very intense and fruity in style.

This is very intense and fruity in style. It really impresses you with its richness. Pure Merlot. Slightly New World. Try in 2020.

Almost overripe aromas of blackberry plum vanilla and cedar. Then rich dense and sweet in the mouth with blackberry jam wet earth graphite and charred oak flavors saturating the palate. Finishes smooth and very long with a peppery nuance providing lift. This impressively rich and concentrated wine really pushes my envelope: its almost Amarone-like ripeness is not my ideal in fine Bordeaux but many drinkers will love this style.
