Ratings : Robert Parker 92/100, Guide Hachette 2** (Remarkable wine), Gault Millau 14,5/20
« Made from an even blend of Mourvèdre, Syrah and Grenache, the 2013 Faugères Raison d’Etre is more fresh, focused and elegant than the Impertinent cuvee. Inky colored, with brilliant minerality in its cassis, black raspberry, licorice and spring flower-like aromas and flavors, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, integrated acidity and a straight, focused and linear feel on the palate. This is beautiful, and while it will probably evolve longer than the entry level cuvee, yet both are outstanding. » (Wine Advocate 2015 - Robert Parker)

Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : Wines regularly rewarded (The wines of this producer are regularly rewarded by the guide)

About this wine : Finaliste au grand jury des coups de cœoeur, ce 2013 livre une olfaction riche et élégante, associant aux fruits noirs (pruneau) et à la violette les épices douces et des nuances fumées. On retrouve cette richesse aromatique, avec un penchant pour le cassis, dans un palais aux tanins fermes mais sans agressivité, bien équilibré par la fraîcheur de la finale. Un vin encore en devenir.

About the vineyard : L'autodidacte Julien Seydoux a racheté en 2009 ce domaine de 44 ha, conduit en bio, qui propose des faugères souvent remarquables. Une valeur sûre.

Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Assemblage de Mourvèdre, Syrah et Grenache, le Faugères Raison d'Etre 2013 est plus frais, droit et élégant que l'Impertinent. D'une couleur intense, il présente des arômes et parfums de cassis, de framboise noire, de réglisse et de fleurs de Printemps, le tout relevé par une superbe minéralité. L'attaque est riche, l'acidité intégrée et la sensation en bouche est directe, droite et linéaire. C'est un très beau vin, et même s'il évoluera probablement mieux que l'entrée de gamme, les deux sont exceptionnels.

Wine rated (guide 2016) : 14,5/20 (Bon)

About this wine : Sous son judicieux assemblage (50 % syrah, 25 % grenache, 25 % mourvèdre), se cache une matière dense : épices douces, mûre, cerise noire, ronce, note animale. Ce vin aux multiples facettes aromatiques montre un caractère tannique souple et distingué.

Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 1*Star (A reliable production, recommendable, in line with expectations from the appellation(s))

About the vineyard : Belle endormie qui fit la grandeur de Faugères dans les années 1990, reprise en mains par Julien Seydoux, venu ici avec modestie d'apprendre le terroir et avec l'envie de porter à nouveau les Estanilles au premier plan. Les élevages s'adaptent progressivement aux matières. Les rouges sont tous puissants en saveurs. Des vins de forte personnalité. Réussis inverso et raison d'être 2014.
