WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2017
(WS92-95 points) This sports loganberry and raspberry fruit, with a lively savory streak and menthol echo on the finish. Stays polished and sleek in feel, with the fruit winning out in the end. – JM

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2017
(JS94-95 points) A solid core of fruit to this young wine really seduces you with blackberry, chocolate and and walnut character. Full-bodied, velvety and intense. Citrusy undertones. All here. Better than 2015?

(WA92-94 points) The 2016 Faugeres is a blend of 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in 60% new oak. It has a ripe black cherry and cassis scented bouquet, just a touch of volatility although that should disappear by the time it is in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. This has good backbone and fresh acidity, nicely focused with a taut, quite linear finish that feels more restrained and classic in style than previous vintages. Superb. - Neal Martin
