1893 – 6th edition : Chateau Jean Faure was recognized as a 1st growth of Saint-Emilion at the end of the 19th century.

Olivier Decelle has in a few short years transformed the long-neglected estate of Jean Faure to the levels expected of a top-tier St.-Emilion property. Jean Faure's approximately 40 acres sit to the west of Château La Dominique; just 300 feet further grow Cheval Blanc's vines. Chateau Figeac is around the corner; l'Evangile is up the road.

 

Yet it takes more than just great terroir to make legendary wine. Decelle has assembled an impressive team, both in the fields and in the cellar. Crops are thinned, harvested by hand and sorted by two triage tables, natural and gentle whole-cluster vinification is natural. The estate's blend, a combination of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec, captures the nobility of the great St.-Emilion estates while expressing a lush, seductive quality found in the finest Pomerols.
