This sports loganberry and raspberry fruit, with a lively savory streak and menthol echo on the finish. Stays polished and sleek in feel, with the fruit winning out in the end.

92-95 points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator (2017)

The 2016 Faugeres is a blend of 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in 60% new oak. It has a ripe black cherry and cassis scented bouquet, just a touch of volatility although that should disappear by the time it is in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. This has good backbone and fresh acidity, nicely focused with a taut, quite linear finish that feels more restrained and classic in style than previous vintages. Superb.
