A red Bordeaux of superb quality and value, just over the fence from a well-known Grand Cru label in St Emilion. With the same namesake and ownership as St Emilion's Chateau Faugères, this Cap de Faugères from Cotes des Castillon benefits from superior investment as well as great vineyards. The resulting Merlot-dominant red is consistently so juicy yet fine that Robert Parker labelled it "always one of the top Côtes de Castillons." From a great vintage with an 'Indian summer', this exceptional red will pour beautifully with dinner or improve a few years in cellar.

What The Critics Say

91/100 James Suckling

"Lovely aromas of dark berries and red currants with dried flowers and a pleasant gamey note. Super polished and focused with lovely acidity and red fruit character. Drink now."
