Château Faurie de Souchard
Decanter average score: 17pts/20 (90/100pts)
Individual judges’ scores: Stephen Brook 16 James Lawther MW 17.25 Steven Spurrier 17.5
There’s some delicacy and lift on the nose, with considerable freshness but also some mocha tones from the oak. Smooth and ripe, but also lots of vineyard character. Tannins beautifully blended in for a good future. A fine, classic St-Emilion.
