St Chinian and Faugeres: panel tasting results

1 4.5 5
Fewer than 60% of wines were recommended, with the tasting somewhat of a 'quality minefield', but we shouldn't lose sight of the incredible value these areas can offer, said out panel. See the top rated St Chinian and Faugeres wines, as published in the Decanter July 2013 issue, here...

Subtle, finely composed fruit scents, with plenty of lush ripeness. Black plum and cinnamon scents coming through as well. Vivid, deep and mouthfilling wine, with a fine core of flavour to it. Amply satisfying as a drink, too: balanced, harmonious and nourishing.
