A very limited production cuvee, the 2010 Peby Faugeres is sold in a specially designed bottle from Silvio Denz, who also owns Lalique Crystal. It comes from the oldest portion of the Faugeres vineyard, which is actually more of a completely separate entity under Denz than it was under the previous owners. The 2010 is 100% Merlot and again 15% natural alcohol. The vines were cropped at 20 hectoliters per hectare, but harvested about a week before the harvest finished for the main Faugeres vineyard. Most observers would tend to look at this wine as a modern-style, massive, intense St.-Emilion, with an opaque purple color, a floral nose shaded by notes of blueberry liqueur intermixed with black raspberries, vanillin, subtle smoke and barrique smells. It is full-bodied and built for two decades of longevity, but should be reasonably drinkable in 5-6 years because of the 100% Merlot content. This is a thrilling wine, as it has been in nearly every vintage where it has been produced.||Acquired by Swiss native Silvio Denz a number of years ago, this property continues to overachieve in virtually every vintage. Behind the scenes, Stephan von Neipperg, the proprietor of La Mondotte, Clos de l’Oratoire, and a number of other properties, consults on viticultural matters, while harvesting, winemaking and elevage are guided by Michel Rolland.

This gushes with exotic fig sauce, mulled blueberry and blackberry fruit and enticing black tea, anise and charcoal notes. Long and very fleshy, with powerful, pure fruit in reserve. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Blackish. So, so concentrated and exaggerated. Such a lot of apparent alcohol on the nose!Heady Cabernet aromas – very ripe. Almost tastes New World. Sweet and opulent with just a hint of oak. Very hedonistic and extreme – especially in terms of ripeness. Well made even if far from classically styled! Drying finish.Throughout the sweetness dominates and then tarry tannins. Very drying. Strictly for fans of mass and alcohol. St-Émilion’s answer to port?! jancisrobinson.com

Even more extreme than Faugères %u2013 even off the scale. Powerful, rich with huge extract. Needs time and an acquired taste. Drink 2020-2030. James Lawther, decanter.com

Unctuous and long, the wine ends with licorice, chocolate, spicy plum and jammy berry liqueur. winecellarinsider.com
