    Critical Acclaim:

    This goes for it, with bold mocha and ganache aromas followed by dark plum, blackberry and blueberry pâte de fruit notes. The dark, anise-filled finish flirts with overextraction, but ultimately there's beautiful mouthfeel and good vibrancy as the fruit echoes. An impressive effort.

    Wine Spectator

    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.

    The Wine Advocate

    This wine shows mint and spice flavors, new wood and soft tannins. Fruity, attractively forward and ripe.

    Wine Enthusiast

    A little chewy and austere with some very pretty blueberry and currant character. Medium to full body, with fresh acidity and a clean finish. Minerally. Will fill in nicely with elevage. 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet.
