Winemaker's Notes

#27 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

Critical Acclaim

"The Peby Faugeres comes from a sector of Faugeres of over 20 acres where the vines are 45 years of age on average. In 2009 the yields were only 18 hectoliters per hectare. This 100% Merlot cuvee was impressive from barrel but is even more remarkable from bottle. One of the superstars of the vintage, this dense, opaque purple wine displays notes of blueberry liqueur intermixed with graphite, pen ink, licorice, incense and white flowers. Deep and full-bodied, with a boatload of tannin and glycerin as well as incredible texture and length, this is a wine of first-growth quality from St.-Emilion that should be cellared for a good 7-8 years, and then drunk over the following 25-30. It finished at around 15% natural alcohol and there are about 1,000 cases of it.
Rating: 98+"

"A gorgeous wine, featuring a torrent of raspberry and blackberry fruit that blazes along, thanks to riveting acidity that just won't quit. Loads of spice, black tea and perfectly integrated toast notes hold sway on the very sleek finish for now, but this is really stunning for its beam of pure fruit. Best from 2015 through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes."
