Bright medium ruby. Supperripe, porty aromas of blueberry, espresso and licorice. Deep, sexy and sweet, with ripe, densely packed flavors of crushed dark berries, licorice and spicy oak. Finishes with ripe, chewy tannins and sweet fruit. Not a subtle wine but offers a lot of flavor - not to mention considerable immediate appeal. (A second bottle of equal quality showed more perfumed lift to its blackberry, licorice and violet aromas and was distinctly less porty; the palate was a bit less weighty and more elegant.)

Dark ruby/purple-colored with a smoky, sexy nose of black cherry fruit, licorice, vanillin, and spice, this medium-bodied, elegant yet flavorful, mouth-filling St. Emilion possesses excellent depth and fine overall balance. The long finish exhibits some tannin, but overall this is an accessible, up-front claret to consume over the next 7ndash;8 years. It is also a reasonably good value. A sleeper.

A wine of beautiful purity, symmetry, and grace, this complex, dark purple-colored 1998 reveals abundant quantities of black fruits infused with notions of new oak and graphite, medium to full body, sweet tannin, admirable elegance, and beautiful richness. Anticipated maturity: nowndash;2015.

(Barrel sample) A dark, meaty wine, very new world in its richness and opulence. It is concentrated, packed with black fruit.

Fantastic aromas of berry, chocolate and cherry. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Very well done. A chacirc;teau on the rise.

Shows dried blackberry on the nose, with hints of mineral and fresh herbs. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and silky, chewy tannins. Cool, minerally and fruity, with excellent length. Very well made for the vintage. Best after 2013.

Just when you thought things couldn't get any better at this estate, the new proprietor, Silvio Denz, keeps building on the preexisting quality. Consultant Michel Rolland appears to have instituted an even stricter selection. The beautiful 2005 Faugères offers a deep ruby/purple hue along with notes of creosote, black cherries, blueberries, crushed rocks, and acacia flowers. It is full-bodied and concentrated, with silky but substantial tannin, and good acidity.
