Drink 2015 - 2020

The Ex Arena cuvee is largely based off of Grenache, yet also incorporates a small part of Mourvèdre. It’s aged 9 months in stainless steel prior to bottling. The 2012 Ex Arena is an impeccably made, high quality wine from this estate. Giving up lots of baking spices, raspberry, licorice and toasted spices, it’s medium-bodied, pure and elegant on the palate. The normal blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre, drink it anytime over the coming 4-5 years. One of my favorite producers in Faugères, Domaine de Cébène is run by the passionate and talented Brigitte Chevalier. She's just finished work on a new winery, and her wines are always beautifully textured and shine for their balance and elegance. She makes four cuvees: the Les Bancèls, named after the schist soils of the region and a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre; The Belle Lurette based largely on Carignan; The Ex Arena the Grenache heavy blend aged all in stainless steel; and the Felgaria, which is mostly Mourvedre driven. These are beautiful wines worthy your hard earned money.

Drink 2015 - 2021

Made from 70-100 year-old Carignan vines (also incorporates some Grenache and Mourvèdre) and aged in stainless steel, the 2013 Faugères Belle Lurette sport an inky purple color to go with textbook Carignan plum, new leather, distilled herbs and licorice aromatics. Medium to full-bodied, with terrific purity, integrated acidity and ultra-fine tannin, it’s a great Faugères to enjoy over the coming 4-6 years.

Drink 2015 - 2022

Chevalier’s Felgaria cuvee is based mostly on Mourvèdre, and is the richest, most structured wine in the lineup. It’s also aged 10 months in new oak. While I rated the 2011 94 points last year, the 2012 Faugères Felgaria isn’t far behind and is a smoking 2012. Big, rounded, supple and mouth filling, with lots of minerality in its black and blue fruits, wild herbs, licorice and underbrush aromas and flavors, it covers the palate in fruit, has medium to full-bodied richness and tons of character. It should have no problems continuing to knock your socks off through 2022. One of my favorite producers in Faugères, Domaine de Cébène is run by the passionate and talented Brigitte Chevalier.

2012  Domaine de Cebene Faugeres les Bancels

Drink 2015 - 2020

The 2012 Faugères Les Bancèls is similar in style to the 2010, with a rounded, supple and sexy style that stays fresh and highly drinkable. Made from Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre (with a splash of Carignan), with each variety vinified separately in stainless steel tanks, it’s medium to full-bodied, has a full, rich mid-palate and lots of sweet fruit on both the nose and palate. As with the 2010, there’s an upfront feel here, yet I suspect it will evolve nicely on it balance for at least 4-5 years.
