From a larger site in the Castillon region, the 2017 Chateau Cap De Faugeres is outstanding, and this estate is just about a no-brainer purchase as it seems to deliver the goods in every vintage. Lots of blackcurrant fruit, notes of sandalwood, tobacco leaf, and spice, medium to full-bodied richness, and a rounded, layered mouthfeel, as well as plenty of minerality, make for a brilliant Castillon. Based on 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in casks, drink it any time over the coming 10-12 years.

The 2017 Cap de Faugères is very nicely balanced for the year. There is just enough freshness and density of fruit to cover the slightly grainy, vegetal note that lurks beneath. The 2017 is rich, boisterous, super-expressive and inviting. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later. Tasted two times.

Fresh and juicy in feel, with an up-front persona defined by red currant and plum fruit flavors. Light floral, savory and apple wood notes fill in on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2027.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cap de Faugeres (a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a little sluggish to begin, revealing subtle notions of baked black cherries, warm plums and boysenberries plus hints of tilled soil, bay leaves and pencil shavings. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant with lovely freshness and well played, soft tannins, finishing savory.
