Wine Enthusiast / Faugères 2008

2011-12-31 Wine Enthusiast

H&B’s 2008 Faugeres is rich and complex, with herbal garrigue aromas of lavender and laurel framed against the solid ripe dark berry and cherry fruit core. The mouth is brisk and lively, with vibrant acidity lifting the dark fruit flavors and carrying through to the chocolate-and espresso-flecked close. Good now, but hold for another two to five years for even greater enjoyment. – Lauren Buzzeo
