About Chateau Faugeres 2015 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

 The flagship of the Vignobles Silvio Denz portfolio, Château FAUGÈRES consists of 42 homogeneous hectares of some of the most beautiful terroir in St.-Émilion. The vines are located on the appellation’s limestone plateau, composed of calcareous soil on asteriated limestone dating from the Lower Oligocene, and on south-south-east facing clay-limestone slopes in a cirque, made up of calcareous soil on clay-limestone molasse from the Upper Eocene and Oligocene.

Sustainable, virtually organic viticulture with no herbicides, receiving a HVE3 certification. Good drainage also avoids excessive water in the soil, which enables low yields, and for the fruit to reach a good level of ripeness without becoming waterlogged.

This 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon is rich in anthocyanins and has velvety and finely extracted tannins. There is a freshness on the palate and perfect balance. The wines are very aromatic, with notes of red berries, menthol and licorice, and a marked mineral character. A long finish, fruity and fresh.

James Suckling scored this 95 Points saying, "Very deep-set aromas of blackberries and red and dark plum fruits, set amid integrated oak spices, cedar and hints of earth. The palate has a super plush feel with intense flavors of blueberries and dark plums. Succulent tannins that are smooth, entrancing and very long. Try from 2022."

Wine Enthusiast scored this 95 Points saying, "Smooth and opulent, this is a densely tannic wine. Its dark fruits and dusty texture are backed by juicy acidity and a core of framing tannins. It will be powerful and rich with age. Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points"

Wine Spectator scored this 93 Points saying, "Beautiful aromas and flavors of warm fig and boysenberry reduction lead off, with extra raspberry and cassis notes filling in behind them. Best from 2023 through 2035."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate scored this 92 Points saying, "The 2015 Faugeres is a blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 15 months in French oak, 50% new. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it has a nose of baked plums, warm cherries and black berries with touches of meat and fried spices. The full-bodied mouth is rich, opulent and spicy with firm, velvety tannins and lovely freshness lifting the finish."

Jeb Dunnuck scored this 92 Points saying, "The 2015 Château Faugeres includes slightly less Merlot than the 2016 and is 75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc. Like a lot of 2015s, it’s already open and approachable and offers lots of cassis and black cherry fruits, plenty of spice, herbs and earth nuances. With medium to full-bodied richness, terrific purity and elegance, and present, yet sweet tannin, I suspect it will fill in with 2-3 years in the cellar and keep for 15+. Tasted twice."
