JAMES SUCKLING: "A juicy and nicely chewy young red with crushed stone and salt, with black berry and blueberry character. Medium-bodied with excellent tannins and a persistent finish. Crunchy. 70% merlot, 25% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon."
JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2022 Château Faugères comes from the cooler eastern edge of Saint-Emilion, and it looks to be a beautiful wine in the vintage. Ripe black cherries, leather, dried herbs, and loamy earth all define the aromatics, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a balanced, elegant mouthfeel and ripe, yet building tannins. It's going to shine with just a few years of bottle age."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Black fruit, flowers, chocolate, plums, and mocha shine in the nose. The palate displays more of those lusciously-textured, black cherries, plums, and chocolate. The wine is rich, creamy, long and sweet, with vibrancy, energy, and a touch of savory herbs on the backend. The wine blends 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. 14.5% ABV. Drink from 2024-2045."
WEINWISSER: "70 % Merlot, 25 % Cabernet Franc, 5 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 36 hl/ha. Intensives blaubeeriges Bouquet, Heidelbeergelee, berauschendes Veilchenparfüm, Estragon und heller Tabak. Am geradlinigen Gaumen mit weicher Textur, sandigem Extrakt, zarte kernige Noten im Untergrund, mittlerer Körper. Im gebündelten Finale verschlankt sich der St.-Émilion, dunkler Graphit und Pflaumenhaut. 2028 – 2045."
