Parker : 89 / 100
Chateau Cap de Faugeres vineyard is located in the Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux appellation. The estate stretches over 46 hectares. The 2015 Chateau Cap de Faugeres blend carries larger proportions of Merlot, paired with Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The vintage displays a ruddy-tinted, garnet-red hue. The nose is refined, very intense, with blue fruit notes. Great balance on the palate, with tight tannins, lovely structure, and superb fruity length. This vintage will start peaking in 2022.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Cap de Faugeres has a ripper of a nose, featuring warm plums and baked cherries with hints of garrigue, forest floor and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied, plush and with a savory/meaty character in the mouth, it features impressive restraint and finishes on a mineral note.
