2015 Cap de Faugeres, Côtes de Castillon

SKU #1376472 92 points James Suckling

 Attractive and neatly focused raspberries and red plums with a very supple, polished and succulent palate that delivers plenty of flavor in a refreshing, sturdy frame. This offers plenty. Drink or hold.  (2/2018)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

 I tasted the 2015 Cap De Faugeres on three different occasions and it rated outstanding on two of the three showings. Offering lots of darker fruits, truffle, and leafy herbs aromas and flavors in a medium-bodied, rounded, forward and sexy style, it should impress for upwards of a decade. One bottle had a fair bit of reduction, so don’t be afraid to give this wine some time in a decanter if drinking anytime soon.  (11/2017)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Lively, with aromatic pomegranate, rooibos tea and savory notes forming the core, picking up currant coulis and iron accents on the finish. (JM)  (3/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Cap de Faugeres has a ripper of a nose, featuring warm plums and baked cherries with hints of garrigue, forest floor and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied, plush and with a savory/meaty character in the mouth, it features impressive restraint and finishes on a mineral note. (LPB)  (2/2018)

K&L Notes

Owned now by perfume designer and oenophile Silvio Denz, Cap de Faugères is one of a few Châteaux in the Côtes de Castillon that can trace its lineage back into the 18th century. This charming old estate has been thoroughly modernized and new cellars have been installed by the same architects responsible for Pichon-Longueville’s beautiful facility in Pauillac. As is the case with most Bordeaux, this is best either cellared for a few years longer, or decanted for a good hour or two before drinking.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
