ROBERT PARKER's Wine Advocate : "The estate’s most abundant cuvee of about 5,000+ cases is the 2010 Faugeres, a blend of 85% Merlot with the rest mostly Cabernet Franc and just a small quantity of Cabernet Sauvignon, all bottled unfined and unfiltered. It is another St.-Emilion hitting 15% natural alcohol. Tiny yields of 22 hectoliters per hectare and a late harvest that went into the third week of October have resulted in a stunningly concentrated wine with notes of crushed rock, blue and dark red/black fruits, some camphor, incense and, for lack of a better description, a smell of acacia flowers. A sexy, opulent and full-bodied wine that seems to have more in common with the 2009s than most 2010s, this wine can be drunk out of the gate, but will certainly hit its stride in 3-4 years and last for up to 15."

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.

ABOUT THE WINE This wine has a powerful red fruit bouquet and is at its best after ageing for a few years. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated on the palate, it develops woody, animal aromas with a hint of plums. Good aromatic length ensures a pleasant finish. The wines are aged for 14 months, half in new barrels. The property also produces a second wine, Haut Faugères.
