Jeb Dunnuck
Gorgeous all the way, the 2020 Château Petit Faurie De Soutard boasts a deep ruby/purple color to go with a rich, medium to full-bodied, textured yet also elegant style that makes the most of the vintage. Black cherries, chocolate, tobacco, and earth are just some of the nuances, and it's already complex and nuanced, with a layered, beautifully balanced style on the palate. It's another gem from this team that I can't wait to taste from bottle.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2020 Petit Faurie de Soutard displays a deep garnet-purple color and upfront, vibrant scents of wild blueberries, Bing cherries, black raspberries and dark chocolate, plus hints of ground cloves, cracked black pepper and cumin seed. The medium to full-bodied palate offers a fantastic line of freshness and bold, crunchy red and black berry layers, supported by firm, grainy tannins, finishing long with a cheery skip in its step.

A medium-bodied red with blackberry, bark, mushroom and spice. Rather seamless and fine.

Chateau Petit Faurie de Soutard
Chateau Petit Faurie de Soutard, France
Chateau Petit Faurie de Soutard Winery Image
Chateau Petit Faurie de Soutard dates back to 1851. At one pint, the estate was part of the Chateau Soutard vineyards. It's specific parcels then became part of Chateau Faurie de Souchard and finally Chateau Petit Faurie de Soutard.

Now, the estate is owned by the well established Capdemourlin family, who also manages Chateau Cap de Mourlin, Chateau Balestard La Tonnelle and Chateau Roudier.

This small 8 hectare estate is planted to 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon on clay-limestone, sandy soils with an average vine age of 30 years. About 3,500 cases are produced per vintage.

St-Émilion Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Marked by its historic fortified village—perhaps the prettiest in all of Bordeaux, the St-Émilion appellation, along with its neighboring village of Pomerol, are leaders in quality on the Right Bank of Bordeaux. These Merlot-dominant red wines (complemented by various amounts of Cabernet Franc and/or Cabernet Sauvignon) remain some of the most admired and collected wines of the world.

St-Émilion has the longest history in wine production in Bordeaux—longer than the Left Bank—dating back to an 8th century monk named Saint Émilion who became a hermit in one of the many limestone caves scattered throughout the area.

Today St-Émilion is made up of hundreds of independent farmers dedicated to the same thing: growing Merlot and Cabernet Franc (and tiny amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon). While always roughly the same blend, the wines of St-Émilion vary considerably depending on the soil upon which they are grown—and the soils do vary considerably throughout the region.

The chateaux with the highest classification (Premier Grand Cru Classés) are on gravel-rich soils or steep, clay-limestone hillsides. There are only four given the highest rank, called Premier Grand Cru Classés A (Chateau Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Angélus, Pavie) and 14 are Premier Grand Cru Classés B. Much of the rest of the vineyards in the appellation are on flatter land where the soils are a mix of gravel, sand and alluvial matter.

Great wines from St-Émilion will be deep in color, and might have characteristics of blackberry liqueur, black raspberry, licorice, chocolate, grilled meat, earth or truffles. They will be bold, layered and lush.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
