Château Faugères 2021 – Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity and reveals a certain elegance as well as a nice finesse of grain. There are notes of juicy/ripe blackcurrant, bright black cherry and more lightly ripe red berry fruit combined with hints of black tea/bergamot as well as hints of nutmeg, sweet spices and a subtle touch of saffron. The palate is fruity and offers minerality, juiciness, gourmandize, some acidity, tension, harmony in the matter, delicacy, some tension and a light note of pencil shavings. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of pulpy/juicy black berries, fairly ripe blackcurrant and, more slightly, fairly ripe raspberry, combined with hints of violet, nutmeg, fine bergamot/black tea and a discreet touch of pepper and zan. Sapidity on the finish/persistence. Discreetly marked tannins. Good length.
