Winemaker's Notes

The weather was highly variable all year long, marked by hot, dry months of August and September, ensuring very good ripening of the grapes and guaranteeing a perfect state of health right up to the harvests. In addition the skins were very thick, providing very high marc/juice ratios resulting in wines with lots of colour, rich and very mature tannins, with extraordinary fruit. Harvesting are on 3 and 5 October. The winemaker preferred to make the most of the last days of sun to perfect the ripeness of the grapes.

Critical Acclaim

"The luxury cuvee from Faugeres (owned by Bernard Magrez), the 2000 Peby Faugeres is the real deal. Sadly, only 500+ cases were made of this compelling St.-Emilion. An inky/blue/purple hue is accompanied by aromas of espresso roast, blueberry liqueur, smoke, and graphite. Thick and unctuously-textured with impressive purity and depth as well as full-bodied power and richness, it needs another 2-3 years of cellaring, and should last for two decades. "
96 Points

"Saturated deep ruby. Penetrating nose combines crushed blackberry, violet and exotic orange peel. Concentrated, intensely flavoured and shapely, with well-integrated acidity framing and extending the superripe dark berry flavours. The smooth, fine tannins hit the palate late, allowing the subtle flavours to linger impressively."
93 Points

"This jumps out of the glass, with berry, Indian spices and raspberry character on the nose. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a caressing texture. Slightly short on the finish. A bit too much wood, but impressive. Best after 2008."
