Château Cap de Faugères is a 31-hectare, estate in the pretty village of Sainte-Colombe, earning it the appellation of Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux. The vineyard has a fine terroir of limestone and clay slopes, a continuation of that of Saint-Emilion.
‘Always one of the top Côtes de Castillons’ – Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
|Grape Variety||85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon|
|Brand||Chateau Cap de Faugeres|
'From the same ownership (Silvio Denz) as Faugeres and Peby Faugeres, this 2011 Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux offers a dense ruby/purple color, rich, thick, juicy black currant and black cherry flavors, and hints of oak and graphite. Medium to full-bodied, it is another broad, flavorful, savory sleeper of the vintage that is ideal for drinking now and over the next 7-8 years. It should prove to be very popular with consumers.'
