MY TASTING NOTES

Fruit-laden with lovely plum, blueberry and blackberry aromas with licorice highlights. With a long finish this wine is full bodied and has very concentrated black cherry flavours while being deep dark purple colour. I savoured this wine along with some blue cheese, almonds and organic olives.

REVIEWS

The Wine Advocate – “One of the super classics of the vintage, the 2011 Peby Faugeres (100% Merlot) exhibits a dense blue/purple colour as well as gorgeous aromas of acacia flowers, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. This full-bodied, concentrated wine has more in common with a 2009 or 2010 than most 2011s. The extravagant fruit character nearly conceals some sweet tannin in this masterpiece. Drink it over the next two decades or more.”
