Château Cap de Faugères Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Castillon 2011

External Review:

Plump and enticing, with a mouthwatering anise note that pulls you in quickly before delivering waves of blueberry, açaí berry and plum fruit, followed by bouncy spice and floral notes that add lift and length to the finish. Drink now through 2015.

The 2010 Cap de Faugeres, a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the better sections of the Cotes de Castillon known as Sainte-Colombe, was bottled unfined and unfiltered by consultant Michel Rolland. It tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol and displays kirsch, black currant, licorice and smoky charcoal/barbecue notes. Medium to full-bodied, lush and very sexy already, this sleeper of the vintage is soft enough to be drunk now or can be cellared for up to a decade. Bravo!

The wine exhibits a purple core with a fuchsia rim a new wine with full intensity. Fruity and grapey with some mocha and decent length in this medium-bodied wine. Fresh and lively fruit with well integrated small grained tannins make this wine appea... Andy Frieden. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Cap de Faugeres 750ml

Medium ruby. Perfumed aromas of black cherry, violet and bitter chocolate. Suave and juicy, with good cut to the flavors of blackberry, violet, bitter chocolate and mint. Offers a restrained sweetness and enough stuffing to support its fairly substan... Stephen Tanzer. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Cap de Faugeres 750ml

89 Points - Wine Advocate "Always one of the top Cotes de Castillons, the 2006 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..."-April 30, 2008.- 89 Points - Wine Spectator A juicy, full-bodied red, with clean blackberry andchocolate aromas and flavors. Very fruity and well-balanced. Tempting now. Best after 2011. 6,330 cases made. James Suckling, March 31, 2008
