Additional Details edit

"Grenache and Mourvèdre proportion is naturally raised in our blend for a very demonstrative wine throughout the whole ageing period. The silky Grenache shrouds the natural strength and tannic structure of the Mourvèdre just like an iron fist in a velvet glove …"-Gregory Hecht

"Offering fabulous richness, the 2011 Faugères is ripe and up-front, with loads of red plum, ink, licorice, ground pepper and earthy/mineral qualities to go with a medium to full-bodied, voluptuous profile on the palate. A big, layered effort, it firms up nicely on the finish, and should drink nicely through 2023 or more."
