About

93

"Dark in color, with intense aromas of blackberry, tar and mineral. Almost minty. Full-bodied, with loads of ripe fruit and vanilla bean character. Long and supercaressing. This racy wine has so much going on, yet it's subtle and sexy. Best after 2012. 4,330 cases made."

91 Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better at this estate, the new proprietor, Silvio Denz, keeps building on the pre-existing quality. Consultant Michel Rolland appears to have instituted an even stricter selection. The beautiful 2005 Faugeres 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."

Product Description:

This is a presale offer! Full payment is required on all presales. T Wine is due in Spring/Summer of 2008.

"Made from yields of 27 hectoliters per hectare, the 2005 Faugere's dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet blueberry, raspberry, and cherry fruit interwoven with pain grille and spice box notes. It is a powerful, full-bodied yet elegant wine with good acidity as well as beautiful purity. Enjoy it between 2010-2020."
