Chateau Faugeres 1998

Product Description

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The year of the Merlot. A vintage with long ageing potential.

This year was marked by above average temperatures, especially in May and August when the maximums were between 35°C and 40°C. Rainfall over the year was much higher than the average over the previous 30 years (+ 24%), with, however, very uneven distribution throughout the campaign.

The 1998 vegetation cycle registered a delay of 15 to 20 days at harvest time, owing to the exceptional month of August which brought optimal ripening conditions. The flowering period was very good thanks to the rebalancing of the soils and the good weather conditions.

1823: the Esquissaud family acquired the estates of Châteaux Faugères and Peby Faugeres. 

1987: The land was inherited by Pierre-Bernard Guisez. Up to then, all the wine produced had been sold to a single local merchant. P. Guisez and his wife Corinne wanted to become more involved in the vineyards, setting out on a quest for the finest quality. Their wish was to see these exquisite terroirs become jewels in the crown of the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation, a desire that was to be fulfilled in a short time with the help of Michel Rolland.
