Château Péby Faugères Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

$199.99

One of the top-rated 2010 Bordeaux - limited. 97 points Robert Parker:  "A very limited production cuvee, the 2010 Peby Faugeres is sold in a specially designed bottle from Silvio Denz, who also owns Lalique Crystal. It comes from the oldest portion of the Faugeres vineyard, which is actually more of a completely separate entity under Denz than it was under the previous owners. The 2010 is 100% Merlot and again 15% natural alcohol. The vines were cropped at 20 hectoliters per hectare, but harvested about a week before the harvest finished for the main Faugeres vineyard. Most observers would tend to look at this wine as a modern-style, massive, intense St.-Emilion, with an opaque purple color, a floral nose shaded by notes of blueberry liqueur intermixed with black raspberries, vanillin, subtle smoke and barrique smells. It is full-bodied and built for two decades of longevity, but should be reasonably drinkable in 5-6 years because of the 100% Merlot content. This is a thrilling wine, as it has been in nearly every vintage where it has been produced......Acquired by Swiss native Silvio Denz a number of years ago, this property continues to overachieve in virtually every vintage. Behind the scenes, Stephan von Neipperg, the proprietor of La Mondotte, Clos de l’Oratoire, and a number of other properties, consults on viticultural matters, while harvesting, winemaking and elevage are guided by Michel Rolland."                                            ."

One of the best Saint Emilion I had, so concentrated and rich I almost thought it is a new world. Nose is amazingly rich and deep and color is almost black. The nose evolved over time, full of black cherries, plums, black current, sweet herbs, notes of chocolate and licorice. Full body, with rich robust tannins and fin acidity, this wine needs time, it opened up in the glass and will get even better with cellaring, a lavish chewy finish, score 93+, drink 2014-2022
