Bordeaux Futures 2021 estimated arrival Summer 2024
Appellation: Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
93-94 James Suckling
A very fine-textured wine with linear, racy tannins.Medium body and bright acidity. Mineral and chalk. Lovely, curranty flavor.
93-95 Antonio Galloni for Vinous
"The 2021 Faugeres offers a beguiling mix of inky dark fruit and brighter, saline nuances that lend vibrancy.Red/purplish berries, lavender, rose petal and sweet spice are all beautifully lifted. I have to say, I very much like the energy and overall tension here. A mix of floral and mineral accents punctuates the finish. Terrific."
91-93 Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2021 Château Faugères comes a larger 37-hectare vineyard and 35-year-old vines. The blend is 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, and it will spend 12 months in one-third new barrels. With great aromatics (black raspberries, cassis, violets), medium-bodied richness, silky, ultra-fine tannins, and outstanding balance, it's not a heavyweight and shines for its elegance and purity. It' certainly makes the most of the vintage and will easily end up being an outstanding wine."
