Park 98 points. Perfectly stored in a wine cabinet.
Great producer that got 100 points for the 2005 vintage. Is consistently between 95 and 98 points.
Parker gives 98 points as one of the highest rated in the 2015 vintage: "Produced from 100% Merlot and matured for 18 months in 65% new and 35% one-year-old French oak barrels, the 2015 Peby Faugeres is medium to deep garnet -purple in color with a strikingly gorgeous nose of exotic spices, baked blackberries, plum preserves, cherry cordial and fragrant earth with smoked meats, lavender, licorice and tapenade hints. The boldly fruited, full-bodied palate features opulent, totally decadent spiced black and blue fruits with a very firm yet ripe structure and finishes with incredible depth and length. Stefan von Neipperg consults on the vineyard management here, while Michel Rolland focuses on harvest dates, winemaking, aging and the final blend - a big "bravo" to them both on this 2015!"
Suckling gives 99 points.
73 cl - Nice bottle
