Professional reviews:

James Suckling: “This is pretty, earthy and spicy, with blueberry and blackberry character. Full body, with polished tannins and a lively finish. The dried citrus fruit really comes through here.” 91/100 pts

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “The 2009 is possibly the best Cap de Faugeres yet made, a sleeper of the vintage, and a realistically priced one at that. A blend of 85% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon that hit 14% natural alcohol, the wine displays loads of charcoal, blackberry, espresso roast and white chocolate. It is full-bodied, unctuously textured, with very sweet tannin and stunning purity, texture and length. This is a super-duper wine, bottled unfined and unfiltered under the guidance of the consultant Michel Rolland. Drink it over the next 10+ years.(RP)” 91/100 pts
