Château Faugères Saint-Émilion Grand Cru AOC

Château Faugeres is a St Emilion Grand Cru that is now producing textbook new wave St Emilions.
In 1823, the Esquissaud family acquired the estates of Châteaux Faugères and Péby Faugères. Then in 1987, the land was inherited by Pierre Bernard Guisez, which, with his wife Corinne, wanted to become more involved in the vineyards, setting out on a quest for the finest quality. Their wish was to see these exquisite terroirs become jewels in the crown of the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation, a desire that was to be fulfilled in a short time with the help of Michel Rolland. All this was rewarded with the increase to Grand Cru Classé status in 2012.

2009 was the first harvest to be vinified entirely in the new cellar, designed by Mario Botta and known as the “cathedral of wine”, using all the latest processing technology. The wines of this vintage are characterized by exceptional concentration, rarely equaled, and outstanding balance.
