A "plush, deep and inviting" Saint-Emilion red from a rising star. Faugeres have a leading reputation in this sub-region and have lately been revitalising both their label and methodology under the ownership of Silvio Denz, while maintaining the benefit of twenty-five years with consultant winemaker Michel Rolland. With brooding lushness in the near term and the power to age beautifully, the Faugeres is a must from this vintage.

Its Origins

Château Faugeres is a St Emilion Grand Cru that is now producing text book new wave St Emilions. Since 1997 the property has been owned by the film producer, Péby Guisez and his wife Corine and they have energetically breathed new life into it. There are 20 hectares of vineyards planted with Merlot (70%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%. The grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and the wines are matured in barriques for 15-18 months.

What The Critics Say

93/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2015 Faugères is plush, deep and inviting. Succulent red cherry, plum, tobacco, cedar, licorice and new leather are some of the many nuances that take shape, and attractive floral notes add brightness and lift. This is a very pretty and alluring Saint-Émilion from Silvio Denz. The blend is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasted two times." Drink 2022 - 2040

93-95/100 Wine Enthusiast

"93–95. Barrel Sample. Smooth and opulent, this is a densely tannic wine. Its dark fruits and dusty texture are backed by juicy acidity and a core of framing tannins. It will be powerful and rich with age."

92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown

"The 2015 Faugeres is a blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 15 months in French oak, 50% new. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it has a nose of baked plums, warm cherries and black berries with touches of meat and fried spices. The full-bodied mouth is rich, opulent and spicy with firm, velvety tannins and lovely freshness lifting the finish." Drink 2019 - 2036
