Terroir

An air of grandeur

The little brother of Péby Faugères and Faugères, Château Cap de Faugères, with 12 20 hectares of vines, is located in the pretty commune of Sainte Colombe, in the Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux appellation.

It benefits from superb clay-limestone slopes that are an extension of the terroir in St.-Émilion, worked by the same team with the same rigour and passion.

The terroir is expressed in each vintage, offering wines that can be enjoyed at a relatively early age.

History

Noble lineage

Vinified by the same team and with the same rigour, the property’s wine benefits from a winery designed by the architects Jean de Gastines and Patrick Dillon. Behind its monumental door are 20 stainless steel vats for the production of wines that are ready for consumption shortly after bottling.

Distributed throughout the world, bottles of Cap de Faugères are enjoyed on the most prestigious tables, including that of the British royal family, who served the property’s wine in 2012 for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
