    Item no. 114569

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 is possibly the best Cap de Faugeres yet made, a sleeper of the vintage, and a realistically priced one at that. A blend of 85% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon that hit 14% natural alcohol, the wine displays loads of charcoal, blackberry, espresso roast and white chocolate. It is full-bodied, unctuously textured, with very sweet tannin and stunning purity, texture and length. This is a super-duper wine, bottled unfined and unfiltered under the guidance of the consultant Michel Rolland. Drink it over the next 10+ years. Under new proprietor Silvio Denz, the wines from this property, as well as his Chateau Faugeres in St.-Emilion, have gotten better, even by the high standards maintained by the previous proprietor.

    Bordeaux on a budget, yes but a good one. Full bodied yet smooth. Nice blackberry and coffee flavor. Good long finish with nicely integrated tannins. Glad more was available for purchase after my initial bottle.

    Very nice. Hints of coffee and berries. A little heavy on the tannins for me, but would buy again. NICE.
