A big-time sleeper of the vintage, this 2010 reveals a dense ruby/purple color along with lots of black raspberry, black currant, toasty oak and smoke characteristics offered in a medium to full-bodied style that over-delivers for its humble appellation. -Robert Parker

Blackberry and hints of vanilla on the nose. Full, with fresh tannins and bright acidity. Clean and ultra fine.

Cap de Faugeres From a blend of 85% merlot, 10% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon, (which is how the vineyard is planted,) came in at 14.5% alcohol. This medium/full bodied wine offers abundant fresh, sweet black cherry and chocolate notes in a lush crowd pleasing style that will drink well on release for a fair price. As 10,000 cases are produced, this will also be easy to find.

This has a fresh, invigorating feel, with bright acidity and floral notes cutting through the plum and black cherry fruit nicely. The finish is long and silky. Delicious. -J.M.

Average age of the vines is 30 years old, planted on a limestone plateau and limestone/clay hillsides. Five coopers are used : 40% Taransaud, 15% Vicard, 15% Saury, 15% Berthomieu and 15% Nadalié. Alcohol at 14.5%. Cranberry and cherry pop out of the glass, followed by aromas of cola, cocoa powder, and soy. Blueberry and kirsch appear on the palate with pepper and cedar spice, framed by olive and licorice, with sage and rosemary picking up on the lingering finish. The mouthfeel is generous and expansive. Drink 2015 to 2020. Michel Rolland consults. Tasted twice.
