Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Cap de Faugeres has a medium garnet-purple color and reveals notions of warm plums, blackberry pie and black raspberries with touches of pencil shavings and sautéed herbs. Medium-bodied with a velvety texture and good core of black fruits, it finishes on a long-lasting earthy note.

Blend: 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

D 91
Decanter

An estate that has gone long on extraction in the past, but I'm really enjoying what they have done this year. This is big but very pretty, held back under tension, showing juicy black cherry and touches of chocolate. The soft, chalky tannins are very well placed; you can almost brush through them. This wine impressed me over several tastings. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035

Attractive dark berries and plums with gently flinty warm stones and a very plush, fruity palate with ripe darker plums from start to finish. Try from 2020.

Wine Spectator
This is racy and fresh, showing a beam of loganberry and red currant coulis flavors driving along, laced with subtle savory detail and tobacco and iron notes. The racy finish is carried by mouthwatering acidity. Drink now through 2028.

Jeb Dunnuck
A wine that always seems to deliver, the 2016 Château Cap de Faugères is another winner. Based on 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon that hit 14.5% natural alcohol, it gives up a spicy, dried rose petal, underbrush, and sweet cherry-driven perfume and is silky, pure, and elegant on the palate, with fine tannins. Drink it any time over the coming 10-15 years.

Chateau Cap de Faugeres, France
Chateau Cap de Faugeres Winery Image
Chateau 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, Chateau 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.
