The harmony and freshness of a fine wine from Saint-Emilion

The estate
The Chateau Faugeres terroir dates back to the 19th century. In 1987, Pierre-Bernard Guire and his wife inherited the estate and elevated its vineyard, with the help of Michel Rolland, to the highest level of the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation. The estate teams are constantly in search for quality, aiming to express the estate’s unique terroir in the glass.

The vineyard
The Chateau Faugeres vineyard covers 37 hectares in the Saint-Emilion appellation. The vineyard is managed with sustainable agriculture.

The vintage
The 2019 vintage marked a milestone at Chateau Faugeres. The remarkable Saint-Emilion terroir, with its ideal south-facing orientation, performed beautifully in 2019. The vineyard’s mosaic of terroirs allowed the vines to resist the heatwaves of the summer. The harvest was rather early and spread out, yielding fully ripened fruit bound for a high-quality blend.
