2005 Chateau Faugeres St. Emilion, Bordeaux, France
On Sale $69.99
Purple to the rim, the 2005 Faugères is a powerhouse at 14.5% alcohol, with notes of graphite, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, licorice and truffle. Some incense also makes an appearance in this full-bodied, super-concentrated, modern-styled St. Emilion. If I hadn’t known, I would have guessed was their luxury cuvée Peby…
