Chateau Fayat was created following the merger of Commanderie de Mazeyres, Château Prieurs de la Commanderie, and Château Vieux Bourgneuf. The vineyard lies on exceptionally divers soils. The 2009 Chateau Fayat blend combines higher proportions of Merlot with Cabernet Franc.
The vintage displays a deep red hue. The deep, fruity, and wooded nose reveals luscious aromas of black fruits and pepper. The 2009 Chateau Fayat offers a creamy palate, with plum, blackberry, earth, oak, kirsch, and spices enhanced with a hint of tobacco, along with toasted tannins.
