Chateau Faugeres occupies 37 hectares of homogeneous land which encompasses some of the finest terroirs in Saint-Emilion. The vines are situated on a limestone plateau of asteria limestone subsoil, dating back to the lower Oligocene, and clay and limestone slopes facing south-southeast in a circular formation, with limestone soil on clay and limestone molasse from the upper Eocene and Oligocene. This terroir is cultivated by means of natural sustainable viticulture, involving integrated cultivation and meticulous care on the part of the proprietors.
Chateau Faugeres Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2015 is a blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 15 months in French oak, 50% new. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it has a nose of baked plums, warm cherries and black berries with touches of meat and fried spices. The full-bodied mouth is rich, opulent and spicy with firm, velvety tannins and lovely freshness lifting the finish.
