Reviews

Pretty core of blackberries, blueberries, walnuts and hazelnuts. Medium to full body and velvety tannins. A blend of 70% merlot, 25% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon. ~94-95 JS

The 2023 Faugères is a dense, voluptuous Saint-Émilion. Plush contours wrap around a core of blackberry jam, cloves, lavender, licorice and chocolate. This opulent, full-throttle Saint-Émilion is not at all subtle, yet it also has balance, in its own way. Tasted two times. ~92-94 AG-VM

From the cooler eastern portion of the appellation, the 2023 Château Faugères is deep ruby/purple-hued and has a lively perfume of darker red and blue fruits as well as violets, spring flowers, and charcoal. It's medium-bodied and supple, with the more fruit-forward style of the vintage and outstanding length. Tasted multiple times with consistent results. ~91-93+ JD

The 2023 Faugères has a similar bouquet to the Péby-Faugères this year, although likewise, there is a touch of prune that tips this into sur-maturité. The palate is nicely balanced and fresh on the entry, composed with light tannins, fine tension and admirable structure on the finish. I think that this will improve during élevage and hopefully dispense with the scintilla of over-ripeness. ~89-91 NM-VM
