2019 Château Cap de Faugères  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 92

Dark in color, the wine exudes licorice, smoke, dark chocolate, black pit fruits and cherries. Full-bodied, lushly textured and with a hedonistic, fruit and chocolate filled finish, this will offer a lot of bang for the buck. The wine was made from blending 80% old vine Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. 91-93 Pts

2018 Château Cap de Faugères  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 92

Fresh and juicy, the wine pops with all its ripe, plums, cherries, licorice, coffee bean, cocoa and spice. Lush, opulent and packed with sweet, red and dark red berries, this is good now, but a few more years in the cellar will make it even better. The wine was made from a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. 92 Points

2017 Château Cap de Faugères  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 90

Luxurious and sexy, the wine is loaded with licorice, juicy plums and dark chocolate with an expressive, round finish. This should be quite tasty on release. The wine was made from a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon – despite the estate losing 40% of the yield to frost. 90 Points

2010 Château Cap de Faugères  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 90

2010 Cap de Faugeres From a blend of 85% merlot, 10% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon, (which is how the vineyard is planted,) came in at 14.5% alcohol. This medium/full bodied wine offers abundant fresh, sweet black cherry and chocolate notes in a lush crowd pleasing style that will drink well on release for a fair price. As 10,000 cases are produced, this will also be easy to find. 89-91 Pts

2008 Château Cap de Faugères  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 87

In the secondary stage with truffle and earthy nuances. The fruit is just starting to fade, so catch it quick, before the remaining sweet, red fruit fades. 87 Points

2005 Château Cap de Faugères  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 90

From a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, this ripe, rich, opulently textured wine is stuffed with licorice, coffee bean and chocolate covered black cherries with a touch of jam. For a wine that offers change for a $20 bill, there is a lot to like. This is drinking about as good as it's going to get, so there is not much upside to be gained with further cellaring. 90 Points
