2020 Château Faizeau  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 91

Dark in color and in the fruit, the wine is ripe, lush, round and earthy, with mineral-driven, chocolate-coated black cherries and oak nuances on the palate and in the polished finish. This should age for at least 12 years with ease. 89-91 Pts

Round, ripe and still a bit oaky, this medium bodied wine is going to be best in its youth for all its ripe, lush, licorice covered, dark red fruits. 88-90 Pts
