Tasting Notes

"The 2015 Faugeres is a blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 15 months in French oak, 50% new. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it has a nose of baked plums, warm cherries and black berries with touches of meat and fried spices. The full-bodied mouth is rich, opulent and spicy with firm, velvety tannins and lovely freshness lifting the finish."- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2/21/2018, Interim Issue), Ratings: 92, Drink: 2019-2036

"The 2015 Faugeres is a blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the consultant no less than Stephan Von Niepperg. It has a neat and tidy bouquet, nothing too ambitious, with tightly knitted red and black fruit - boysenberry and blueberry emerging with time. The palate is very smooth and sensual, the acidity well judged, no sharp corners here with a lush, slightly saline finish. This is a thoughtfully crafted Saint Emilion that should drink earlier than many of its peers." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/27/2016, Issue 224), Ratings: 89-91, Drink: 2018-2032
