Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

JS 99
James Suckling
Wow. Really savory this year with an extremely dense and gorgeous palate of ripe fruit and ripe tannins, but an underlying minerality and intensity. Shows really integrated and melted tannins, but then it kick-starts at the end. Neoclassical.
Barrel Sample: 98-99
WS 98
Wine Spectator
Offers layers of dark fig, boysenberry and cassis fruit, with alluring black tea and anise notes. The long, smoldering finish is carried by a graphite edge. Dense, but with serious cut and detail. A classic in the making.
Barrel Sample: 95-98

I always love this cuvée, which comes from a specific parcel of very old vine Merlot on the eastern side of Saint-Émilion. The 2018 Château Péby Faugères, which is a selection of 70% of the production and is aging in 65% new oak, reveals a deep purple color as well as a ripe, blockbuster bouquet of black fruits, smoked earth, spicy oak, and graphite. One of the ripe, powerful wines that still stays light and graceful, it’s full-bodied, has ripe tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. This is a sexy Saint-Émilion to drink over the coming 20-25 years. Tasted twice. Barrel Sample : 96-98.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made of 100% Merlot, the 2018 Péby Faugères is deep garnet-purple colored and comes bounding out of the glass with gregarious notes of blueberry pie, plum pudding, chocolate-covered cherries and mulberries with hints of eucalyptus, cinnamon stick, cloves and unsmoked cigars plus a waft of cedar chest. Full-bodied, taut and muscular, the palate has a rock-solid structure of firm, velvety tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing very long with loads of mineral sparks.

Inky damson in colour, this is a wine where you can feel the influence of the cooler terroir in terms of the bulkier tannins. They are not rustic but are certainly present, crawling across the palate. It's good quality - as are all the Denz wines in 2018, but there's no escaping the slightly distracting concentration, with a little too much marzipan oak on the finish.

Chateau Peby Faugeres, France
Chateau Peby Faugeres Winery Image
Chateau Peby Faugeres stretches over some 7.45 hectares and is located on a single clay and limestone slope, facing south-southeast and consisting of limestone soil on clay and limestone and molasse, soft chalk with silt and clay - a tertiary formation dating back to the upper Eocene and Oligocene.

Thanks to a combination of a rich old soil and a unique micro-climate, the presence of a river and the circular formation of the slope, this terroir in line with the south slope of Saint-Emilion is a world in itself, of which man is merely the custodian. His sole duty is to reveal its full character

Something which Silvio Denz and his team have taken to heart. This terroir is cultivated by means of biological viticulture and meticulous care on the part of the proprietors.

St-Émilion Wine

Bordeaux, France

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.
