2020 Château Jean-Faure  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

Richly colored, the wine is soft, vibrant and medium-bodied. The perfume easily displays its bouquet of flowers, dark cherries and spice. The wine is elegant, refined and silky on the palate, leaving you with earthy, spicy, fresh and savory, dark red fruits on the palate and in the finish. 91-93 Pts

2019 Château Jean-Faure  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

With a beautiful dark hue, the wine shows a complex set of aromatics, lush, silky, sexy textures, richness and complexity. The finish exudes a myriad of spicy red and black fruits, licorice and herbs. Part of what makes this wine so interesting is the blend featuring a high proportion of Cab Franc in the mix using 65% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot and 5% Malbec. 92-94 Pts

2018 Château Jean-Faure  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

With good purity in the fruit, softness in its texture, ripe tannins and loads of fruit on your palate and in the juicy, sweet finish, I am really liking this elegantly styled wine. Give it a couple of years in the cellar and promises to be even better. 92 Points

With flowers, black raspberries, dark cherries, licorice, sap and just a bit of jam in the nose, the wine is rich, fresh, sweet, round and refined. There is a nice energetic pop on the palate with plenty of ripe sweet fruit in the end note. 90-92 Pts

2016 Château Jean-Faure  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

Another Saint Emilion that is better in bottle than it was in barrel, the wine now offers deep, juicy plums, espresso, licorice, truffle flowers. Silky, elegant, fresh and lively, with a lifted, dried red pit fruit and floral finish, give this a few years before popping a cork, and it will show even better. 91 Points
