Château Faugères 2008 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Grand Cru Classé 

The nose is aromatic and offers a slight power / concentration as well as a good finesse of the grain (limestone / terroir). It reveals notes of blackberry, undergrowth and cassis associated with touches of tonka bean, sweet spices and nutmeg. The palate is fruity, mineral and offers a small freshness, a slight suavity, a slight richness, a slight tension as well as an acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, crushed cassis and small notes of cherry associated with small touches of ripe red fruits (raspberry, redcurrants), cardamom, undergrowth, cedar as well as very discreet toasted hints, nutmeg, tonka bean hint and a very discreet hint of mushroom (in the background). Tannins are very discreetly firm and very discreetly tight / dry.
