James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2012
Aromas of smoke meat minerals dried flowers and sandalwood with fruit. Full body with round velvety tannins and lots of juicy ripe fruit. Chewy and delicious. Needs at least four to five years to soften.

Far more accessible is the 2009 Faugeres. Again cropped at a low 18 hectoliters per hectare but a different blend of 85% Merlot 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon this wine boasts 14.5% natural alcohol and both... Far more accessible is the 2009 Faugeres. Again cropped at a low 18 hectoliters per hectare but a different blend of 85% Merlot 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon this wine boasts 14.5% natural alcohol and both Stefan von Neipperg and Michel Rolland confer on the consulting. Full-bodied and dark ruby/purple with a nose of graphite pen ink blueberries and black raspberries the wine is deep dense and pure with a broad savory texture and a long finish with no astringency. Drink this beauty over the next 15-20 years.

Dense in its layers of blackberry linzer torte and plum sauce but caressing in feel with silky structure and a long finish that has a well-buried chalky minerality. Almost approachable now but the precision and balance... Dense in its layers of blackberry linzer torte and plum sauce but caressing in feel with silky structure and a long finish that has a well-buried chalky minerality. Almost approachable now but the precision and balance are there for the cellar. Best from 2013 through 2025. -JM

Deep ruby core with a paler ruby rim. The nose offers up aromas of cassis sweet spice vanilla truffle and an earthy minerality. Full-bodied soft and round this coats the palate with plush flavors of dark fruits licorice... Deep ruby core with a paler ruby rim. The nose offers up aromas of cassis sweet spice vanilla truffle and an earthy minerality. Full-bodied soft and round this coats the palate with plush flavors of dark fruits licorice mocha lead pencil and minerally earth notes before ending on a lingering juicy note. With its elegance and precise structure this is accessible now but will easily age for another 10+ years."
