"Shows lovely polish despite a hefty core of crushed plum, raspberry coulis and cassis. The long, racy finish lets mouthwatering red licorice, fruitcake and singed anise play out, while a roasted apple wood note wraps everything up. Should unwind into a serious crowd-pleaser with cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2028."

In 1987, the vineyards were taken over by the Guisez family, direct descendants of the Esquissaud family who had owned the property since 1823. Under the direction of Pierre-Bernard Guisez and his wife Corinne Guisez, Chateau Faugeres began improving the vineyards and in the cellars.
Chateau Faugeres began to take off when Silvio Denz purchased Chateau Faugeres in 2005 from Corinne Guisez. Silvio Denz made the decision to buy the vineyard with the help and advice of Stephan von Neipperg, who also consults on the vineyard at Chateau Faugeres along with Michel Rolland.
Before Silvio Denz decided to produce Bordeaux wine, he was in the perfume business, which is where he made his fortune. Silvio Denz also owns Lalique as well as other wineries in Bordeaux, Spain, and Italy.
Aside from Chateau Faugeres,in Bordeaux, Silvio Denzo also owns Peby Faugeres in Saint Emilion and Cap de Faugeres in the Cotes de Castillon appellation.
In 2009, Silvio Denz finished a complete renovation of Chateau Faugeres. The architecturally stunning, state-of-the-art winery, designed by Mario Botta, is one the most modern, Bordeaux wine-making facilities in the Right Bank.
