Château Faugères Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The *impressively endowed* 2011 Faugeres is a big wine for the vintage, boasting an opaque ruby/purple color as well as notes of creosote, black currants, blueberries, coffee beans and toasty oak. This modern-styled, full-bodied, pure, textured, long St.-Emilion’s zesty acidity gives freshness and vibrancy to this big wine. It tips the scales at 14% natural alcohol, and is a blend of 85% Merlot with the rest primarily Cabernet Franc and a tiny bit of Cabernet Sauvignon. It should evolve for 15-20 years." --Robert Parker*Robert Parker rating: (91-93 pts.)**We will notify you on arrival summer 2014.*

Very lush yet pure, offering terrific mouthfeel to the boysenberry, plum and cassis fruit flavors that are well-focused through the finish, with floral and red licorice hints checking in. This is off to a lovely start.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Faugeres 750ml
