Château Péby Faugères

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