One of the super classics of the vintage, the 2011 Peby Faugeres (100% Merlot) exhibits a dense blue/purple color as well as gorgeous aromas of acacia flowers, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. This full-bodied, concentrated wine has more in common with a 2009 or 2010 than most 2011s. The extravagant fruit character nearly conceals some sweet tannin in this masterpiece. Drink it over the next two decades or more. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

A full, very powerful wine for the vintage, with big, juicy fruit and velvety tannins. So much fruit and character here. A generous but polished wine for the vintage. Lots of blackberry and sexy wood character. Pure... A full, very powerful wine for the vintage, with big, juicy fruit and velvety tannins. So much fruit and character here. A generous but polished wine for the vintage. Lots of blackberry and sexy wood character. Pure merlot. Try in 2017.

This goes for it with bold mocha and ganache aromas followed by dark plum blackberry and blueberry pâte de fruit notes. The dark anise-filled finish flirts with overextraction but ultimately there's beautiful mouthfeel... This goes for it with bold mocha and ganache aromas followed by dark plum blackberry and blueberry pâte de fruit notes. The dark anise-filled finish flirts with overextraction but ultimately there's beautiful mouthfeel and good vibrancy as the fruit echoes. An impressive effort.-J.M.

You know my scathing review of the 2008 (blind) prompted a polite letter of enquiry from the estate. I have no problem with that (and at least the letter was polite!)

I have no problem with that (and at least the letter was polite!) The Peby-Faugeres 2011 was picked from 23rd until 26th September. It actually has a lovely opulent bouquet that is pure and not overpowering and has gorgeous floral aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins on the entry with very good balance crisp acidity and (I cannot believe I am writing this) engaging elegant finish. See...I like you really. Tasted April 2012.

100% merlot. Aged 18 months in 65% new oak. From a 9-hectare estate near Valandraud Fleur Cardinale and Rol Valentin. Average vine age is a high 50 years planted in limestone soils with yields of 25 hl/ha. Dark in color... 100% merlot. Aged 18 months in 65% new oak. From a 9-hectare estate near Valandraud Fleur Cardinale and Rol Valentin. Average vine age is a high 50 years planted in limestone soils with yields of 25 hl/ha. Dark in color. The nose is dominated by very ripe black fruit aromas with notes of warm stones and smoke. Initially a bit syrupy in texture the dark black fruit flavors transition toward crunch ripe cherry on the backpalate. Fresh acidity and firm tannins need to integrate for a harmonious finish. Wait a few years after release and enjoy between 2017-2030. Tasted twice.
