The terroir of Chateau Faugeres harks 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 appellation. The estate's teams are constantly in search for quality, aiming to express the estate’s unique terroir in the glass.
A Grand Cru Classe, Chateau Faugeres produces Saint-Emilion wines that stem from a 34.85-hectare vineyard.
Vinification and aging
Vatting for 25 to 30 days in wooden vats. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months (1/3 new, 1/3 second-fill and 1/3 third-fill).
Merlot (75%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%).
Expressive and lively, the nose combines fruity (blueberries, sloes, black cherries) and floral fragrances.
Rich and flavorsome, the palate is seduced by this wine’s fine acidity along with its elegant and smooth tannins. The finish is persistent and blends freshness and balance perfectly.
