Wine AdvocateAlways one of the top Cotes de Castillons, the 2005 Cap des Faugeres is revealing more rustic tannin than it did from barrel, but it is weighty, deep, rich effort offering a flamboyant nose of black fruits, coffee, chocolate, and toasty oak. While dense and full-bodied, the rough tannin in the finish suggests it will benefit from another year or so of bottle age; it should keep for a decade.

Wine SpectatorA juicy, full-bodied red, with clean blackberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Very fruity and well-balanced. Tempting now. Best after 2011. 6,330 cases made.
