Calmel & Joseph Faugeres 2017
This 2017 vintage offers us an alluring cherry red wine with an intensely fruity nose of red berries, boxwood, mint, tobacco and cocoa. In the mouth the attack is emphatic, exceedingly elegant and balanced with, as always, the characteristic weft of its tannins with their fine equilibrium between tension and power.
Cherry, jammy raspberry and wild rose mix with darker notes of violet, liquorice, musk and cedar. This vintage possesses a more assertive personality than ever, no doubt due to the evolution in methods of working in the vineyard and in the cellar, with a charmingly rustic quality and terroir-driven expression that retain a surprising, elegant harmony.
