Other Reviews….

This estate, which was purchased a few years ago by Swiss entrepreneur Silvio Denz, continues to push the envelop and improve on what was already an impressive group of wines from previous proprietress Corinne Guisez. From a 50-acre vineyard in the commune of St.-Christophe des Bardes, the 2010 is a blend of 85% Merlot and the rest mostly Cabernet Franc and a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. Perhaps the most powerful wine ever made at Faugeres, it tips the scales at 15% alcohol. Both Michel Rolland and Stephan von Neipperg consult at this estate. The 2010's dense blue/purple color is followed by notes of creosote, toasty new oak, licorice, blueberry liqueur and cassis. This dense, opulent, full-bodied, massive effort is surprisingly civilized and intense. It should drink well for 10-15 years. Drink: 2013 - 2026.
Score: 91-94
Robert Parker Wine Advocate # 194 May 2011

This is rich and chewy with blackberry and licorice character. Firm and long tannins. Dark chocolate and very structured. l little New World but intense. Good potential for aging.
Score: 93-94
