Château Faugères Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"A good core of fruit, with silky tannins and a medium-to-full body. Caressing and balanced. Very nicely done for the vintage...89-91" WS 4/07."New proprietor Silvio Denz’s goal is to take the quality of Faugeres to an even higher level, thus he has hired both Michel Rolland and Stephan von Neipperg as winemaking consultants. The 2006 Faugeres is a tannic, dense ruby/purple-colored effort with loads of structure, sweet fruit, and a backward style that is neither as forward nor opulent as the 2005. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring, and consume it over the following 10-15…89-91" WA 5/07

The 2006 Faugeres reveals solidly constructed, chunky, blue and black fruit aromas and flavors intertwined with notions of new oak, licorice, and espresso roast. Medium-bodied with some unresolved tannins, it is well-constructed and nicely concentrat... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Faugeres 750ml
