2012 Grand Cru Saint Emilion

Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Saint Emilion & Satellites

Classification Grand Cru

Quite a lightweight nose of bright redcurranty fruit. Brightness and purity continue on the attack and then the deeper darker more plummy, savoury core. This is nicely balanced. L&S (Apr 2013)

The Faugeres 2012 has a ripe candied bouquet with light fig and raisin notes. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, plenty of sweet red and black fruit and a finish that is pleasantly refined. Rating: 88-90 Neal Martin, (May 2013)

Château Faugères

Château Faugères spreads across the appellation divide between St Emilion and the Côtes de Castillon and, consequently, produces examples of each. Long time in the ownership of the Guisez family, Faugères was bought in 1995 by Swiss businessman Silvio Denz who, together with his friend Comte Stephan von Neipperg and well-known consultant Michel Rolland, have driven the estate's reputation forward. To this end, more vineyards have been purchased and a brand new state of the art winery built. Four wines are produced at Château Faugères - the "grand vin", Château Faugères, 85% Merlot; a second wine, Haut Faugères; a super-premium 100% Merlot Parker-pleasing wine, Cuvée Spéciale Péby, named after Péby Guisez; and the produce of their Côtes de Castillon vineyards Cap de Faugères.
