L’Hirondelle de Faugères is one of the creations from the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé, Château Faugères. The wine originates from the same terroirs as the estate’s fine wine, the magnificent clay-limestone on the plateau and slopes of Saint-Emilion. All the wines receive the same meticulous handling including investing time, hard work and extreme vigilance to nurture the grapes to optimum ripeness in the run up to harvesting.
Only Merlot grapes are used in the l’Hirondelle de Faugères blend. The wines are matured for 12 months in French oak barrel, in the majestic “wine cathedral” designed by internationally renowned architect Mario Botta. L’Hirondelle de Faugères has all the elegance and finesse of the very finest Saint-Emilion wines.
Bordeaux red structured , rich and intense flavors, sometimes woody notes. Perfect for exceptional moments.

A Saint-Émilion fleshy and well-balanced
Beneath the concentrated, bright ruby appearance, the delicate and expressive bouquet is laden with ripe, red and black fruit aromas and spices, enhanced by well-integrated oak character. Harmonising well with the bouquet, the wine is wonderfully fleshy and fruity on the palate, supported by silky tannins. Overall, the wine offers great balance and is deliciously fresh on the finish.
