TASTING NOTES

"This is a big time sleeper of the vintage as well as one of the vintage's most attractively priced wines. Faugères has turned out an opaque black/purple-colored 2000 displaying aromas of ink, blackberry liqueur, licorice, and toasty oak. Seamless, rich, and full-bodied, with even more weight and length than it revealed prior to bottling, it is a reasonably-priced, serious wine that merits attention from consumers. Delicious stuff! Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate # 146

"Intense aromas of crushed raspberries, minerals and lilacs. Medium- to full-bodied, with firm, yet very silky tannins and a long berry and vanilla aftertaste. Very fine indeed. Best after 2009. 8,330 cases made." Wine Spectator

"A nice nose of blackberries and hints of fresh herbs like lemon grass. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a soft, friendly finish. This is open and fun." JamesSuckling.com
