This goes for it, with bold mocha and ganache aromas followed by dark plum, blackberry and blueberry pâte de fruit notes. The dark, anise-filled finish flirts with overextraction, but ultimately there's beautiful mouthfeel and good vibrancy as the fruit echoes. An impressive effort.

The estate's luxury cuvee, the 2011 Peby Faugeres comes from the oldest (averaging 45 years) sector of the vineyard and is essentially 100% Merlot. Yields were 26 hectoliters per hectare and the fruit was harvested at the end of September. The wine is packaged in a spectacularly beautiful engraved glass bottle. Opaque purple in color, the 2011 is one of the most intense, full and rich wines of the vintage. Notes of ink, graphite, blueberries, black raspberries, toasty oak, white chocolate and mocha are all present in this full-throttle, expansive, savory St.-Emilion. It should drink well for two decades or more.
