Château Jean Faure, St-Emilion 2010

Rating: 18/20pts
The success of this 54% Cabernet Franc cannot surprise given that Jean Faure’s vines lie next to those of Cheval Blanc. Very pure raspberry syrup, spicy plum and vanilla notes are lifted by floral nuances and an austere minerality.

    Thanks Decanter, great to see Cabernet Franc getting the recognition it fully deserves for its contribution to Bordeaux assemblages. Given our strong bias at Paradise Rescued, it would also be nice to see an article focussed on the the full varietal CabFrancs that are now available from Bordeaux. As the climate warms, watch this varietal grow in importance – the Grand Cru chateaux are already catching on.
