A perfect wine in this vintage, the 2005 Péby Faugères has the classic liqueur of blueberries and spring flowers. Dense purple and full-bodied, with unbelievable richness, this tastes like a great Napa Cab from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, even though there's no Cabernet Sauvignon in it. This is a sensational wine – rich, full and multi-dimensional, with a skyscraper-like mid-palate and finish. Kudos to Péby Faugères for producing one of the perfect wines of the vintage. Drink it in about 3-4 years as well as over the following two decades.
The wines are matured on fine lees for 18 months in 100% new French oak barrels. This Saint-Emilion combines depth, power and elegance.
Until 2005 Péby 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. On the death of Péby Guisez in 1997, his daughter Corinne selected the property's best plots to create Péby Faugères, which is matured in new oak barrels for 16 months. These three properties were acquired in 2005 by the business man Silvio Denz (owner of Lalique). Advised by Michel Rolland, the new owner upheld traditions and continued to produce a haute couture wine. From the 2009 vintage onwards, Château Péby Faugères' bottles have been engraved with a Lalique design.
