The year of consecration

Officially recognized as a Grand Cru Classé, Jean Faure’s destiny is now associated with that of some of the world’s greatest wines, on equal terms with the icons of Saint-Emilion. The Cabernet Franc grapes were picked just before the heavy rainfall: this was the vintage’s turning point, as it avoided austerity, thereby liberating freshness and delicious crispness.

40{2ef463e3719c7dd2168eb1e95ab7f500c25eaa9b553c9fd777c739b03501f35d} of Cabernet Franc offers the pleasure of fruitiness and fluid tannins, forming a sapid palate. The Merlot provides discreet creaminess, thereby balancing out the Cabernet’s generous freshness. This is a lively delicacy and a cheerful sketch, straightforward and enjoyable, exactly the type of Bordeaux wine that we would like to come across more often.
