Purple to the rim, the 2005 Faugères is a powerhouse at 14.5% alcohol, with notes of graphite, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, licorice and truffle.

Long and supercaressing. This racy wine has so much going on yet it's subtle and sexy. Best after 2012. 4330 cases made. –JS

Dark fruits cassis plum and blueberries on the nose with light floral hints of lilac and violet. Nice sweet soft entry onto the palate of plums and cherry. Well integrated fine tannins. Long smooth cherry and spice finish.
