Drink 2014 - 2021

The 2012 Faugeres Belle Lurette is a stunning blend of 70% old-vine Carignan (70+-year-old vines) and the balance Grenache and Mourvedre. Aged 11 months in stainless steel, it offers a floral, perfumed profile with notions of kirsch, raspberry, scrub brush and crushed flowers all emerging from the glass. Medium-bodied and layered on the palate, with a seamless, sexy texture and notable balance, it’s a rock star effort to drink over the coming 5-7 years. I was blown away by these efforts from oenologist Brigitte Chevalier. Creating this domaine in 2006, she has a bevy of old vines located in the cooler, higher elevation and more northern portion of the appellation. She fashions ripe, yet polished and beautifully balanced wines that savvy readers need to seek out! www.cebene.fr Importer: Calvert Woodley, Washington DC; tel. (202) 966-4400.

One of the most impressive wines in the appellation, the 2011 Faugeres Felgaria is a blend of equal parts Mourvedre and Syrah that spent 11 months in 500-liter demi-muids. Decadently rich and layered, with thrilling notes of spiced raspberries, licorice and crushed rock-like minerality, this full-bodied, sweetly fruited and voluptuous Faugeres has a rock star texture and a gorgeous finish. Hard to resist now, it should evolve gracefully for upwards of a decade. Don’t miss it! I was blown away by these efforts from oenologist Brigitte Chevalier.

Also impressive, the 2011 Faugeres Les Bancels checks in as a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and Carignan that spent 11 months in stainless steel. Named after the schist soils of the appellation, it possesses a sweetly fruity, polished feel, with black raspberry, cassis, toast, spring flowers and creamy licorice giving way to a medium-bodied, hedonistic and impressively made profile on the palate. It should shine for 5-7 years. I was blown away by these efforts from oenologist Brigitte Chevalier.
