Big and fruity, this is packed with sweet-tasting complex tannins. It is smooth, very dark, ripe and generous. The black fruit flavor gives opulence as well as the power that propels the wine. It needs several years of aging.
A beautifully structured wine, with great ripe dark fruits, but also dense and complex. Faugères is showing great class at the moment, and with its balanced, but ripe fruit, this wine is impressive and well worth aging.
Corinne Guisez scored a great success with her 2000. The wine is finely polished, shining, with its generous, deeply concentrated fruits and fine perfumes. The tannins show through the fruit, while the wood flavors hide much more discreetly in the background.
