The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very well judged acidity, layers of crisp black and red fruit with fine mineral tension towards the finish. That's the best Jean Faure that I have tasted at primeur.- NM

Beautifully crafted, the balance of generosity and freshness make this very attractive. Lively finish with a delicate touch of moderately dry tannins. Drink or hold.

Raspberry jam, leather, smoke, espresso and exotic floral/savory notes all race through this perfumed, expressive Saint-Émilion. The Cabernet Franc is particularly expressive here. -- Antonio Galloni

The youthfully taut finish features light cedar, bay leaf and chalk notes that should meld with the fruit after modest cellaring. Best from 2021 through 2031. 5,417 cases made. — JM

Silky, elegant, fresh and lively, with a lifted, dried red pit fruit and floral finish, give this a few years before popping a cork, and it will show even better.
