Scores and tasting notes
Produced from a south-sloping parcel considered to be the finest sub-plot of the Faugeres vineyard, this luxury cuvee has been fabulous since its debut vintage in 1998. The dense purple-colored, medium to full-bodied 2001 Peby Faugeres boasts a flamboyant perfume of espresso roast, melted chocolate, camphor, blackberries, creme de cassis liqueur, and a hint of sweet toasty oak. This opulent, full-bodied, concentrated offering possesses ripe, well-integrated tannin. Give it 3-5 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 15-16. By the way, the 1999 is drinking beautifully, but the 2000 is closed at present.
