RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 is possibly the best Cap de Faugeres yet made, a sleeper of the vintage, and a realistically priced one at that. A blend of 85% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon that hit 14% natural alcohol, the wine displays loads of charcoal, blackberry, espresso roast and white chocolate. It is full-bodied, unctuously textured, with very sweet tannin and stunning purity, texture and length. This is a super-duper wine, bottled unfined and unfiltered under the guidance of the consultant Michel Rolland. Drink it over the next 10+ years. Under new proprietor Silvio Denz, the wines from this property, as well as his Chateau Faugeres in St.-Emilion, have gotten better, even by the high standards maintained by the previous proprietor.

Chateau Cap de Faugeres
Château Cap de Faugères is located in the Côtes de Castillon with its vineyards directly on the St. Emilion border and adjoining those of the St. Emilion Grand Cru, Château Faugères. Both properties are owned by Corinne and Peby Guissez, with Cap de Faugères producing wine that is the equal of many St. Emilion Grand Crus.

The estate consists of 26 hectares of vineyards planted with Merlot (50%), Cabernet Franc (38%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (12%). Recently there has been extensive investment in cellar equipment and the wines are vinified using state of the art technology. They are then matured in small oak barriques (50% new) for 12-15 months.
