- Closure: Cork
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.
Neal Martin eRobertParker.com #230 (Apr 2017)
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.-J.M.
The 2016 Faugères is dark, pliant and racy, with lovely red cherry, plum, spice and leather overtones. Subtle and a bit restrained in this vintage, the 2016 offers good depth and pliancy. Blood orange, rose petal and bright acids add lift throughout. Like all of Denz's 2016s at this stage, Faugères is good, but not particularly expressive. Jean-Philippe Fort is the consultant. Tasted two times.
