(93-95) Another over-achiever in the vintage, the 2018 Château Jean Faure checks in as 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Malbec, which comes from a great terroir not far from Cheval Blanc, Figeac, and Ripeau... (93-95) Another over-achiever in the vintage, the 2018 Château Jean Faure checks in as 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Malbec, which comes from a great terroir not far from Cheval Blanc, Figeac, and Ripeau. Sporting a vivid purple color and incredibly floral, elegant aromas and flavors, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless texture, building tannins, and a great finish. The Cabernet Franc plays the lead role at this point, and this is going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age.

Olivier Decelle is the owner here, doing good work again. This is tight, more old-school St-Emilion in style. It's chewy and broad with raspberry coulis and chocolate notes, and yet there's a juiciness and a freshness... Olivier Decelle is the owner here, doing good work again. This is tight, more old-school St-Emilion in style. It's chewy and broad with raspberry coulis and chocolate notes, and yet there's a juiciness and a freshness running through the palate with touches of chalky minerality, steel and slate that bring elegance to the finish.

(91-92) A tangy and deep red with blackberries and blueberries that follow through to a medium body, firm tannins and a flavorful finish.

(89 - 91) The 2018 Jean Faure is deep garnet-purple in color and opens with tar, new leather and scorched earth notes giving way to baked black plums, blackberry pie and mocha scents. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm, grippy texture and plenty of freshness lifting the savory flavors to a long finish.- LPB
