No review of this wine would be complete without mention of its tenacious proprietor Madame Corinne Guisez. In a recent Wine & Spirits article by Master of Wine Fiona Morrison, Guisez is one of three producers credited with the incredible surge of quality value wines coming from the woodsy and humbler neighbor of St.-Emilion, the Côtes de Castillon. The '99 Faugères reflects humble (price) strength with its dense dark garnet color and just a breeze of forest above black fruit aromas. Silky, rich mouthfeel, finesse, and a surge of spicy fruit through the finish. A well-built, muscular wine perfect for cellaring, but so well-balanced that you can enjoy it now.

A sleeper of the vintage, this estate, impeccably run by Corrine Guisez (also the proprietor of Peby-Faugeres and the nearby Côtes de Castillon vineyard, Cap de Faugeres), has turned out an opaque black/purple-colored 2000 displaying aromas of ink, blackberry liqueur, licorice, and toasty oak. Seamless, rich, and full-bodied, with even more weight and length than it revealed last year, it is a reasonably-priced, serious wine that merits attention from consumers. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018.

All in finesse here. Really interesting aromas of blackberries, plums and Indian spices. Full-bodied, with super, well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. A château to watch in the future.

Pure, sweet fruit marks this medium-bodied, attractive, well-balanced St.-Emilion. It offers abundant quantities of black cherry and currant fruit infused with toasty wood and mineral nuances. With sweet tannin and adequate acidity, it can be consumed now and over the next decade.

Corinne Guisez scored a great success with her 2000. The wine is finely polished with generous, deeply concentrated fruits and fine perfumes. The tannins show through the fruit, while the wood flavors hide in the background.

A strong effort in a more challenging vintage, this dense ruby/purple-colored effort offers aromas of black fruits, smoke, licorice, minerals and acacia flowers. Rich and full, with low acidity, wonderful chewiness, and a soft, approachable, user-friendly style, it will be drinkable upon release, and last for a decade.

A wine of beautiful purity, symmetry, and grace, this complex, dark purple-colored 1998 reveals abundant quantities of black fruits infused with notions of new oak and graphite, medium to full body, sweet tannin, admirable elegance, and beautiful richness. Anticipated maturity: now-2015.
