2015 Cap de Faugeres, Côtes de Castillon (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1264067 92 points James Suckling

 Attractive and neatly focused raspberries and red plums with a very supple, polished and succulent palate that delivers plenty of flavor in a refreshing, sturdy frame. This offers plenty. Drink or hold.  (2/2018)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

 I tasted the 2015 Cap De Faugeres on three different occasions and it rated outstanding on two of the three showings. Offering lots of darker fruits, truffle, and leafy herbs aromas and flavors in a medium-bodied, rounded, forward and sexy style, it should impress for upwards of a decade. One bottle had a fair bit of reduction, so don’t be afraid to give this wine some time in a decanter if drinking anytime soon.  (11/2017)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Lively, with aromatic pomegranate, rooibos tea and savory notes forming the core, picking up currant coulis and iron accents on the finish. Drink now through 2023. (JM)  (3/2018)

Vinous

 The 2015 Cap de Faugères, Silvio Denz's entry-level offering, is juicy and powerful from start to finish. Blue and purplish hued fruits, smoke, licorice, sweet spices and new oak give this plump, forward Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux its distinctive personality. The 2015...sure is delicious, especially in its peer group. Tasted three times. (AG)  (4/2016)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
