Château Faugères 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, elegant and offers a beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry, crushed small black fruits and small notes of strawberry, crushed / juicy cassis combined with small / discreet touches of violet, juicy blueberry, chocolate as well as discreet toasted hints, caramel and an imperceptible hint of tea (in the background). The palate is fruity, elegant, fine, harmonious and offers delicacy, a beautiful guideline, a beautiful definition, a good finesse of the grain, a slight tension as well as a mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry and fleshy black fruits associated with small touches of fleshy strawberry, fleshy raspberry as well as hints of fleshy blueberry, chocolate, caramelization, vanilla and a very discreet hint of almond (on the finish). Tannins are fine, well-built and elegant. Good persistence. There are hints of tonka bean / cocoa and juicy blackberry persistence.
