Decanter   89

Owned by Silvio Denz, this has a customary flourish of big, tight oak, very much in the style of the ch√Ęteau, but they could take the foot off the pedal a little and dial back the 50% new oak. It delivers black cherry fruits and a lick of chocolate. Harvested 18 September to 2 October.

James Suckling   92-93

A solid and layered red with blackberries, wet earth and spices. Cloves. Medium to full body, ripe tannins and a juicy finish.

Wine Advocate   90-92

The current blend is 85% Merlot, with smaller portions of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Faugeres is a little shy to begin, revealing crushed black cherries, mulberries and red currants with coaxing plus hints of lavender, bay leaves and tilled soil. Medium-bodied with a firm frame of grainy tannins and just enough freshness, it delivers oodles of black fruit and a refreshing lift to the finish.
