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.

From a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine opens with licorice, ripe, black cherry, vanilla and kirsch. Forward, lush, juicy and fresh, the wine leaves you with sweet, dark chocolate covered cherries and a hint of dust in the tannins.

Round, fat, sweet, ripe, dark, juicy fruits, licorice, espresso and wet earth all wrapped up in an open, easy to drink, open style. Not overtly complex, but there is loads of well-priced, early drinking pleasure here.

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

2009 Château Cap de Faugères  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 90

Licorice, coffee bean, boysenberry jam and chocolate scents pop from the glass. Sweet, round, lush and forward, the crowd pleasing wine is already open, fun to drink and fairly priced at $20 or less.

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.

2006 Château Cap de Faugères  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 85

On the downward slope, this is starting to fade and drop its fruit. Drink up sooner than later.

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.
