Château Péby Faugères Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$115

The luxury cuvee from Faugeres (owned by Bernard Magrez), the 2000 Peby Faugeres is the real deal. Sadly, only 500+ cases were made of this compelling St.-Emilion. An inky/blue/purple hue is accompanied by aromas of espresso roast, blueberry liqueur, smoke, and graphite. Thick and unctuously-textured with impressive purity and depth as well as full-bodied power and richness, it needs another 2-3 years of cellaring, and should last for two decades. Robert Parker

Wednesday Wine Committee from this past week. A fantastic hosting by @joe leatherwood . 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual. Not familiar with this producer. Since I don’t have much context to go on, it’s hard to get a pulse on typical profile, but when comparing to the other 2000 Bordeauxs in the lineup, this seemed much older. Old baked fig, cocoa dusted dates, scorched black plum and pipe tobacco. Aged funk on the palate with leather, dried black cherries, and an herbal finish. A touch syrupy too. I called this old Brunello.

Lots of blue fruit. Blueberry and some black plum. Very fruit forward and young. Not overly complex but enjoyable.

smooth as smooth can, a luscious vintage with excellent drinkability presenting blackberry and herbs (including eucalyptus and mint) at first, followed by leather, underwood and dark red fruits, fading out with hints of smoke and broken pencil in a really, really appropriate lenght... a problem of the 2000 vintage is the MASSIVE and fine-grained deposit - you may decant it in two steps and take extra care, otherwise be disappointed by a dusty, sandy mouthfeel and edged green pepper impact. for the knights of grape varietys: the péby's a 100% merlot.
