Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling

Blackberry, black cherry, orange peel, and rose petal aromas follow through to a medium to full body, with creamy and polished tannins and a juicy finish. 60% cabernet franc, 35% merlot and 5% malbec. From organically grown grapes. Give it three or four years to come together.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A particular success for this Cabernet Franc-dominant estate situated next to Cheval Blanc, the 2020 Jean Faure bursts with aromas of cherries, minty blackberries, rose petals and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and seamless, it's supple and suave, its enveloping core of vibrant fruit concealing sweet, powdery tannins, concluding with an expansive, perfumed finish. This beautiful wine stands out for its perfume and its ultra-refined texture.

JD 94
Jeb Dunnuck

Mostly Cabernet Franc with 35% Merlot and 5% Malbec, the 2020 Château Jean Faure is a gorgeous, seriously good Saint-Emilion delivering ample red, blue, and black fruits as well as exotic floral, violet, and chocolate-like nuances. Medium to full-bodied and concentrated on the palate, it has the vintage's pure, focused, structured profile, is impeccably balanced, and has a great finish.

D 92
Always one of the highest Cabernet Franc percentages in St-Emilion which gives this a sculpted and juicy but oh so slow delivery of the blue-toned fruits. Not one to drink young; really needs a few years to develop in the bottle. You get clear raspberry leaf, tobacco and slate as things open.
Barrel Sample: 92
V 91

With around two-thirds Cabernet Franc, the 2020 Jean Faure delivers quite a refined bouquet with touches of bell pepper infusing the black fruit. Like a little brother of Lafleur? The palate is well balanced with distinctive peppery notes, moderate depth, very fresh with a delineated, saline finish. Very distinctive and once you have adjusted your palate to the presence of Cabernet Franc, it grows on you. Best after 2028.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Broad and soft in feel, but with friendly boysenberry and mulberry fruit flavors laced with hints of sweet tobacco and black tea. Shows a subtle loamy twinge on the finish. A solid effort for the vintage. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec.
