2000 Château Faugères
Red Bordeaux Blend
- St. Émilion Grand Cru
Community Tasting Notes 125
April 23, 2016 - Good, well matured, softish Bordeaux. Not getting any better, but I don't think it's falling off a cliff either. Nothing too exciting, but very enjoyable.

April 5, 2016 - Deep ruby red, no lightening at the rim. Aromas of melted fudge, plums and spices jump out of the glass. In the mouth, this medium- to full-bodied St Emilion showcases a combination of red and black berries, herbs and dark chocolate. This bottle is clearly at peak, with tannins largely resolved. However, there is no sense that the wine will fall apart anytime soon. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if this drinks well for another decade or so. 15 years of bottle age have effectively eliminated youthful oak and rough edges, and what is left is a quintessential right bank wine with nothing out of place -- a wine of true pleasure. 92.

April 4, 2016 - I realize that I'm rating this higher than average, but i think it deserves it. I aerated it and let it sit for an hour. Very lovely.

January 25, 2016 - Soft tannins. Medium length finish. Peaked or just post peak. Still very solid.

(Chateau Faugères St Emilion) A very open and expressive nose here, quite exotic, and rich with spiced, plummy fruit. It has a very attractive palate also, soft at the entry and then showing more structure towards the end. Good acidity, overall this has an appealing composition. A lot of substance here. This needs time, between two and five years at least.
