Possibly the finest Faizeau made to date this sleeper of the vintage reveals a deep ruby/purple color along with a lovely nose of kirsch licorice and pain grille. Full-bodied ripe and seamless with excellent harmony among its component parts it hit 14.5% natural alcohol and is made from 100% Merlot. This extravagant flamboyant effort should drink well for a decade.

Has pretty berry coffee and vanilla character. Medium-bodied with fine tannins lots of sweet black fruit and a long finish. Best after 2012. –JS
