Wine Advocate 89 points - Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. There is just a touch of under-ripeness on the nose of the Cap de Faugeres from Cote de Castillon: raspberry leaf and dried rose petals but something a little green nagging away underneath. The palate is better with a fleshy ripe, opulent opening but after that it feels one-dimensional, never really fans out as it should. Tasted January 2014.
The 2010 Cap de Faugeres, a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the better sections of the Cotes de Castillon known as Sainte-Colombe, was bottled unfined and unfiltered by consultant Michel Rolland. It tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol and displays kirsch, black currant, licorice and smoky charcoal/barbecue notes. Medium to full-bodied, lush and very sexy already, this sleeper of the vintage is soft enough to be drunk now or can be cellared for up to a decade. Bravo! (Mar 2014)
