Winemaker Notes

"Another top wine from this impeccably run estate owned by Corrine Guisez the dark purple-colored 2001 displays a sweet perfume of crushed raspberries, currants, and smoke. Medium-bodied, pure, with excellent concentration and density, this wine admirably balances power and elegance. A fine effort for the vintage."
- Wine Advocate

"Yummy nose of blackberries, meat and spices follows through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long finish. Silky and racy. Very well done. Best after 2007."
-Wine Spectator

Chateau Faugeres, France
Chateau Faugeres Winery Image
Chateau Faugeres is situated on the sunny slopes of the Dordogne valley, 6 kilometers east of Saint-Emillion, in one of the most beautiful winegrowing sites in the Bordeaux region. Robert Parker Jr. included this Chateau among the top 24 Bordeaux wines, calling it "Legend of the Future".

St-Émilion Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Marked by its historic fortified village—perhaps the prettiest in all of Bordeaux, the St-Émilion appellation, along with its neighboring village of Pomerol, are leaders in quality on the Right Bank of Bordeaux. These Merlot-dominant red wines (complemented by various amounts of Cabernet Franc and/or Cabernet Sauvignon) remain some of the most admired and collected wines of the world.

St-Émilion has the longest history in wine production in Bordeaux—longer than the Left Bank—dating back to an 8th century monk named Saint Émilion who became a hermit in one of the many limestone caves scattered throughout the area.

Today St-Émilion is made up of hundreds of independent farmers dedicated to the same thing: growing Merlot and Cabernet Franc (and tiny amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon). While always roughly the same blend, the wines of St-Émilion vary considerably depending on the soil upon which they are grown—and the soils do vary considerably throughout the region.

The chateaux with the highest classification (Premier Grand Cru Classés) are on gravel-rich soils or steep, clay-limestone hillsides. There are only four given the highest rank, called Premier Grand Cru Classés A (Chateau Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Angélus, Pavie) and 14 are Premier Grand Cru Classés B. Much of the rest of the vineyards in the appellation are on flatter land where the soils are a mix of gravel, sand and alluvial matter.

Great wines from St-Émilion will be deep in color, and might have characteristics of blackberry liqueur, black raspberry, licorice, chocolate, grilled meat, earth or truffles. They will be bold, layered and lush.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
