CHATEAU CAP DE FAUGERES Cotes de Castillon
85 % Merlot, 10 % Cabernet Franc, 5 % Cabernet Sauvignon
A good opportunity to sample an extremely well-made wine in the geat 2000 Bordeaux vintage. This wine is slowly approaching its peak and is currently a real pleasure to drink.
“Madame Corrine Guisez, who owns the more famous St.-Emilion estate of Chateau Faugeres, has hit a home run with this terrific wine. A winner, the dark plum/ruby/purple-coloured 2000 exhibits aromas of smoke, herbs, black fruits, liquorice, and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied, expansive, and layered, it is a candidate for 10-12 years of evolution.” Robert Parker 89pts
