Chateau Jean Faure, 2005
St Emilion Grand Cru
Description and Reviews:
This is a world-class Bordeaux red from Saint-Emilion. Its class is hinted at by the fact that close neighbours include the illustrious Châteaux of Cheval Blanc, Conseillante and Figeac. This is the sort of wine that is a real find: because the property underperformed under its previous owners, it has gradually been rebuilding its reputation since it was purchased by Olivier Decelle in 2004. Current releases are now revealing what
potential this property has.
a special wine estate this is. In September 2012 the work here was rewarded and Jean Faure became a Grand Cru Classé again.
A very ripe nose with kirsch, plum, a touch of nail varnish and creme de menthe with a lot of toasty new oak. The palate is full-bodied with firm tannins, well integrated oak, reticent towards the finish though. Good density with a touch of melted chocolate becoming evident with further aeration.
