The rich aromas of a red wine from Castillon

The estate

Chateau Cap de Faugeres is a wine estate based in Sainte-Colombe and classified under the Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux appellation.

The vineyard

The 46-hectare vineyard of the Chateau Cap de Faugeres is planted in clay-limestone soils similar to those of Saint-Emilion. The vineyard is managed with sustainable agriculture.

The vintage

A particularly rainy winter preceded a very mild spring, resulting in significant mildew pressure. Thanks to the dry and warm conditions of mid-May, flowering was uniform and early. From June 19, the precipitation gave way to dry and cool weather until mid-July, which marked the beginning of veraison. Very high temperature peaks were recorded until mid-August, when thunderstorms allowed the grapes to restart the ripening process. The grapes, harvested around ten days ahead of average, had high levels of tannin and color, and were perfectly balanced.

The vinification and aging

Fermentation for 25 days in stainless steel vats, as well as aging for 15 months.

The blend

The Château Cap de Faugères 2020 is made from a blend of Merlot (85%) and Cabernet Franc (15%).

The tasting

The Chateau Cap de Faugères 2020 seduces with its fruitiness, aromatic richness and generosity.
