From the Critics:

  • "Barral's 2008 Faugeres Jadis - which, as usual, features Carignan and south-facing Syrah and gets two full years in barrel - smells fascinatingly of grenadine, rose hip, and smoked meat. Bright blackberry and tart cherry fruit suffused with chewy tannin and an impression of crushed stone lead into a finish of mouthwatering salinity, invigorating brightness, and complex interaction of fruit and mineral. This is another instance of relative leanness conditioned by the vintage but by no means any deficiency in extract, and a sizeable bonus in vivacity. I would plan on drinking it over the next 3-4 years, though like any 2008 from the hailed-on belt of Faugeres, it should be carefully monitored for any future signs of trouble. The regimen of fermentative (and post-fermentative) extraction here, Barral points out, was little different than that for his basic cuvee, and given the effects of hail it's understandable that he wanted to exercise caution." - 91 Pts David Schildknecht - The Wine Advocate
