Château Péby Faugères

A red wine from the commune of Saint-Étienne-de-Lisse in the area Saint-Emilion (Bordeaux). It is not a private winery, but the almost eight hectares of vineyards used for it are part of Château Faugères (see the history there). This estate was bought in 2005 by the Swiss entrepreneur Silvio Denz from the previous owner Corinne Guisez. In honor of her husband Pierre-Bernard (Péby for his friends), who died in 1998, she had selected the best plots of average 45-year-old Merlot vines and for the first time produced a wine called "Péby Faugères" in 2000. From the 2005 vintage he was then called "Château Péby Faugères" (also "Château Faugères Cuvée Spéciale Péby"). He was classified in 2012 as "Grand Cru Classé". According to the US wine critic Robert Parker He is one of the best wines in the world Bordeaux, The long-lived red wine is made from 100% extremely reduced yield (2009: 18 hl / ha) Merlottrauben. He matures for 18 months in 100% new oak barrels. Every year, only about 800 boxes (9,600 bottles) are produced.
