2013 Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux

Chateau Cap de Faugeres vineyard stretches over 46 hectares in Saint-Colombe, and lies on limestone-clay slopes. The 2013 Chateau Cap de Faugeres blend reflects the terroir: Merlot (larger proportion), Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The vintage from the Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux appellation displays a lovely plum-ruby hue. The nose exudes blackberry, black cherry, liquorice with hints of wood. The pleasantly mellow attack leads to depth and lovely texture on the mid-palate. The 2013 Chateau Cap de Faugeres is fruity, with relatively soft tannins.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Consistently a well-made wine from one of the larger properties in the Castillon (more than 100 acres), this blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon came from tiny yields of 21 hectoliters per hectare. The wine exhibits a dark ruby/plum/purple color, with sweet mulberry and black cherry fruit, licorice, camphor, and background oak and earth. The wine shows good sweetness on the attack and mid-palate, has modest depth and texture and a good, round finish. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. This is also a good value.
