Winemaker's Notes:

An extraordinary vintage for the vineyard. Although dry, except for some much-needed rain in August and September, conditions were not excessively hot, producing very sweet, deeply-colored grapes with high acidity levels, lots of fruity flavor and tannic potential of a kind rarely equalled.

About Chateau Peby Faugeres:

Chateau Peby Faugeres stretches over some 7.45 hectares and is located on a single clay and limestone slope, facing south-southeast and consisting of limestone soil on clay and limestone and molasse, soft chalk with silt and clay - a tertiary formation dating back to the upper Eocene and Oligocene.

Thanks to a combination of a rich old soil and a unique micro-climate, the presence of a river and the circular formation of the slope, this terroir in line with the south slope of Saint-Emilion is a world in itself, of which man is merely the custodian. His sole duty is to reveal its full character

Something which Silvio Denz and his team have taken to heart. This terroir is cultivated by means of biological viticulture and meticulous care on the part of the proprietors.
