Winemaker's Notes

The 2005 vintage was not excessively hot, producing very sweet, deeply-colored grapes with high acidity levels, lots of fruity flavor and tannic potential of a kind rarely equalled.

85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

"Dark in color, with intense aromas of blackberry, tar and mineral. Almost minty. Full-bodied, with loads of ripe fruit and vanilla bean character. Long and supercaressing. This racy wine has so much going on, yet it's subtle and sexy. Best after 2012. 4,330 cases made."
93 Points

"Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better at this estate, the new proprietor, Silvio Denz, keeps building on the pre-existing quality. Consultant Michel Rolland appears to have instituted an even stricter selection. The beautiful 2005 Faugeres offers a deep ruby/purple hue along with notes of creosote, black cherries, blueberries, crushed rocks, and acacia flowers. It is full-bodied and concentrated, with silky but substantial tannin, and good acidity. "
91 Points

"Good ruby-red. Exotic, liqueur-like aromas of black raspberry, chocolate and mint. Superripe, thick and exotic, but with the minty element giving lift to the chocolate liqueur flavor. Very sweet and creamy wine with considerable early sex appeal. The tannins are fat and very ripe."
