The 2011 Faugeres is a very strong effort, which is not surprising given the profound quality of Peby Faugeres. This bigger cuvee exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as lots of sweet black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with hints of licorice and incense. Full, rich and layered, this up-front, gorgeous 2011 should drink well for 12+ years. It is a sleeper of the vintage. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The Faugeres is very ripe and raisin-like on the nose with touches of fresh prune. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly alcoholic entry. I appreciate the boldness and structure of tannins, although the fruit towards the finish is a little disjointed. Perhaps this will merit a high score after bottling because the finish is well defined and compensates for the nose. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

A little chewy and austere with some very pretty blueberry and currant character. Medium to full body, with fresh acidity and a clean finish. Minerally. Will fill in nicely with elevage. 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet. jamessuckling.com

Deep bright cherry red. Violets and dark red fruit. Just a touch dusty. Fresh, chewy and generous. The tannins finish a little dry but the finish is lively. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Maintains the modern house style. Dark colour. Generous fruit, firm ripe tannins and acidity is a little more obvious but balanced. Drink 2017-2025. Decanter.com
