A delicious and fruity red wine of Castillon

The estate
Château Cap de Faugères is a wine estate based in Sainte-Colombe and classified under the Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux appellation.

The vineyard
The 46-hectare vineyard of the Château Cap de Faugères is planted in clay-limestone soils similar to those of Saint-Émilion. The vineyard is managed with sustainable agriculture.

The vintage
2019 was a landmark vintage at Château Cap de Faugères. The first part of the year turned out to be cool and damp and was followed by the arrival of a very hot summer. The clay-limestone soils perfectly fulfilled their role, saving the vines from too much water stress during the second part of the year. This allowed the vines to fully bloom and the fruit to reach perfect maturity in time for the harvest.

The winemaking
Manual harvest from September 19 to October 8. Fermentation from 25 to 30 days.

The ageing
Ageing for 12 months in stainless steel tanks.

The blend
Merlot (85%), cabernet franc (15%)

The tasting
Tasted en primeur, the Château Cap de Faugères 2019 offers a superb expression of the Castillon terroir. This very harmonious vintage combines elegance, generosity and bright fruit, which linger on a fresh and very aromatic finish.
