Owned by Silvio Denz, Château Peby Faugères is a Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion located on the right bank of Bordeaux. Thanks to the efforts and investments made by Silvio Denz, Château Peby Faugères has gradually risen to become one of the most beautiful references of the appellation.
The Château Peby Faugères vineyard covers 7.45 hectares of vines in the Saint-Emilion appellation. The vines are planted on a clay-limestone hillside (a vineyard all in one piece) and enjoy a south / southeast orientation. In a constant quest for perfection and with a profound respect for the environment, the vineyard is cultivated with organic viticulture.
The 2019 vintage is one that will mark the history of Château Peby Faugères. The remarkable terroir of the property has performed beautifully during this year. The clay-limestone soils of Peby Faugeres have enabled the vines to fight against the water stress caused by the scorching summer, allowing the Merlot to reach perfect maturity.
Manual harvest from September 21 to October 8. Fermentation from 25 to 30 days.
Ageing for 18 months in new French oak barrels.
Tasted en primeur, the Château Peby Faugères 2019 immediately seduces the palate with its sweet and charming attack, which highlights the expression of the fruit. Structured by silky tannins, the wine packs the palate with its density of matter. With great elegance and freshness, the vintage lingers on the finish for quite a long time.
