    ($63-$80; this wine is actually labeled |Peby-Faugeres; new owner Silvio Denz, who bought this estate in 2005, subsequently changed the name of his special all-merlot cuvee Healthy ruby-red. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, chocolate mint, coffee and smoky oak. Ripe, sweet and high-toned, with an impression of elevated alcohol contributing to the lushness of texture. Opulent and liqueur-like, and already approachable; almost too much of a sweet thing. This rather exotic, low-acid 2003 may last well on its sheer thickness and concentration.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

    A luxury cuvee culled from the large Faugeres vineyard, Peby-Faugeres is a nearly 100% Merlot made from 45-year-old vines planted in limestone soils. The wine's upbringing is similar to that of a well-crafted Burgundy, with malolactic in barrel, aging on its lees, and no clarification at bottling. It has been a huge success since it debuted in 1998. Even better from bottle than it was from cask, the intense, deep purple-hued 2003 offers a big, sweet nose of blackberries, creme de cassis, creosote, coffee, and flowers. Full-bodied and opulent with low acidity, huge glycerin and flavor density, and a spectacularly long, flamboyant finish, this exotic, intense St.-Emilion reflects this interesting vintage.

    A more ambitious wine and therefore even more of an overstatement. Really seriously unrefreshing. Loose, heavy, unappetising.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    Crushed plum, berry and cherry on the nose. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and velvety tannins. Goes on for minutes. Very 2003. Very Port-like, but I love it. 1,330 cases made.
