Château Jean Faure, St-Emilion 2010
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.
Price: UK – £35 Paramount Vintners, R&B Wines.
Taster: Ian D’Agata
