WINEMAKER NOTES  : The 2005 vintage was not excessively hot, producing very sweet, deeply-colored grapes with high acidity levels, lots of fruity flavor and tannic potential of a kind rarely equalled. 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

ROBERT PARKER's Wine Advocate (95) : Purple to the rim, the 2005 Faugères is a powerhouse at 14.5% alcohol, with notes of graphite, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, licorice and truffle. Some incense also makes an appearance in this full-bodied, super-concentrated, modern-styled St.-Emilion. If I hadn’t known, I would have guessed was the luxury cuvée Péby and not the basic Faugères! Drink it over the next 15 years. 

Wine Spectator 93
Dark in color, with intense aromas of blackberry, tar and mineral. Almost minty. Full-bodied, with loads of ripe fruit and vanilla bean character. Long and supercaressing. This racy wine has so much going on, yet it's subtle and sexy. Best after 2012. 4,330 cases made.

ABOUT THE WINE : This wine is vinified in thermoregulated wood and stainless steel tanks before aging for 12 to 14 months in barrels used for aging one to two wines before. It has a beautiful aromatic intensity, a great structure and is very fruity on the palate. It is a well-balanced and very seductive wine.

ABOUT THE WINERY : Until 2005 Cap de Faugères was owned by the Guisez family, who also owned Château Faugères and Château Péby-Faugères, on a property 6 kilometres east of the village of Saint Emilion. These three properties were acquired in 2005 by the business man Silvio Denz, owner of Lalique.The Château Cap de Faugères, extends over 31 hectares, in the town of Sainte-Colombe, in Castillon-Côtes-de-Bordeaux AOC. The winery was renovated by architects Jean de Gastines and Patrick Dillon. This domain is among the best of the appellation.
