Omschrijving

Château Faugères HALFJE 2018 - Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

 

Druivenras Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Over het wijnhuis Op een zonovergoten helling van de Dordogne-vallei ligt Château Faugères, een schitterend 18e eeuws klooster omgeven door 37 hectare wijngaard. Het was lange tijd in handen van filmregisseur Péby Guisez, die het domein op de kaart heeft gezet. In 2005 nam Silvio Denz de wijngaard in 2005 over en liet meteen een state-of-the-art wijnkelder van 3.550 vierkante meter bouwen.

Awards "The 2018 Faugères, which was harvested beginning September 25, is composed of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple colored, it slips sensuously from the glass with notions of blackberry compote, wild blueberries and redcurrant jelly with hints of cardamom, cigar box and dusty soil plus a waft of star anise. Full-bodied and built like a brick house, it has a firm backbone of rounded tannins with bold freshness and loads of black fruit preserves layers, finishing long and spicy." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"An extremely polished Bordeaux with silky tannins that are integrated and creamy-textured. Lots of blueberry and blackberry character. Such pure fruit here. It’s already long and delicious, but has plenty of structure and needs at least four or five years of bottle age. Try after 2024." - James Suckling

"Barrel sample. Darkest core and bright purple rim. Dark-fruited and charry on the nose. Nicely dry in texture, like many layers of paper but could do with a bit energy and it builds to a pretty dry finish. Might well come round as there’s good fruit in the middle." - Jancis Robinson

"The 2018 Faugères is fabulous. Silky and nuanced, the 2018 is striking right out of the gate. As I noted previously, the 2018 marks a transition to a more finessed style that is hugely appealing. There is plenty of the richness Faugères fans expect, but, at the same time, the wine is so well balanced and harmonious. Hints of rose petal, lavender, spice and dark fruits linger on the memorable close. The 2018 is an undeniably sexy wine." - Vinous

"Black cherry and plum preserve flavors are fresh and well-defined, with anise, violet and black tea notes gilding the finish. Nicely inlaid graphite edge gives it structure, but that stays in the background, letting the fruit play out. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2022 through 2032." - Wine Spectator

"This 2018 is true to the Faugères signature of big, bold and totally confident in its tannic and fruit structure. It's high in alcohol but also high in acidity, with great structure without trying to push its agenda. The big, chewy tannins are reflective of its cooler terroir on the eastern edge of St-Emilion. This impressive wine will age well. Drinking Window 2026 - 2040." - Decanter
