Château Cap de Faugères Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Castillon 2005
"A perennial value pick for smart consumers, Cap de Faugeres is fashioned by world-renowned oenologist, Michel Rolland. The 2005, which achieved 13.5% natural alcohol, is a forward concoction of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Its black/purple color is accompanied by sweet scents of incense, black tea, licorice, and subtle oak. Medium to full-bodied, opulent, and rich, it should drink well for a decade or more." --Wine Advocate, 4/06 FUTURES: This order will be processed when the wines arrive between Fall 2007 and Spring 2008.

External Reviews for Château Cap de Faugères Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Castillon
A juicy, full-bodied red, with clean blackberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Very fruity and well-balanced. Tempting now. Best after 2011.
Always one of the top Cotes de Castillons, the 2005 Cap des Faugeres is revealing more rustic tannin than it did from barrel, but it is weighty, deep, rich effort offering a flamboyant nose of black fruits, coffee, chocolate, and toasty oak. While dense and full-bodied, the rough tannin in the finish suggests it will benefit from another year or so of bottle age; it should keep for a decade.
Lots of crushed berry on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy yet round tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Packed with fruit and good tannins. Best after 2009.
Madame Corrine Guisez, who owns the more famous St.-Emilion estate of Chacirc;teau Faugeres, has hit a home run with this terrific sleeper of the vintage. A large-scaled, opulently-textured, inky/purple-colored effort, it boasts a rich, sumptuous perfume of camphor, black raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. It is a rich, full-bodied wine to enjoy over the next decade.
(Barrel tasting) Loads of blackberry and raspberry aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate with fine tannins and a long, caressing finish.
This is part of the Chacirc;teau Faugegrave;res estate, which straddles two Right Bank appellations mdash; St.-Emilion and Cocirc;tes de Castillon. The property was sold last year to Swiss luxury goods entrepreneur Silvio Denz, who retained the services of globetrotting consultant Michel Rolland. The wine is packed with crushed berry flavors and good tannins.
Lovely plummy wine, with lots of chocolate and vanilla character. Medium-bodied, with full and round soft tannins and a long finish. Much better than from barrel. Delicious. Best after 2005.
