En démultipliant les efforts de recherche de la qualité, Silvio Denz a choisi de faire émerger la plus belle expression des grands terroirs argilo-calcaires qui font de ce Château la richesse et la finesse d'un vin haut de gamme.
«Made of 100% Merlot, the 2018 Péby Faugères is deep garnet-purple colored and comes bounding out of the glass with gregarious notes of blueberry pie, plum pudding, chocolate-covered cherries and mulberries with hints of eucalyptus, cinnamon stick, cloves and unsmoked cigars plus a waft of cedar chest. Full-bodied, taut and muscular, the palate has a rock-solid structure of firm, velvety tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing very long with loads of mineral sparks.»
Wow. Really savory this year with an extremely dense and gorgeous palate of ripe fruit and ripe tannins, but an underlying minerality and intensity. Shows really integrated and melted tannins, but then it kick-starts at the end. Neoclassical.
