« Made from 100% Syrah, the 2014 Faugères Clos du Fou might just be one of the wines of the vintage. Elegant, weightless, pure and fresh, with full-bodied aromas and flavors of graphite, black raspberries and cassis, this beauty has fine tannin, perfect balance and a clean, focused finish. It will see 24 months in demi-muids before being bottled and is stunner that’s well worth the effort to track down. » (Wine Advocate 2016 - Robert Parker)

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated : 14,5/20 (Bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 1*Star (A reliable production, recommendable, in line with expectations from the appellation(s))

About this wine : La syrah domine largement cette cuvée épicée et fruitée. On la mettra en cave, elle a besoin de fondre son élevage mais le tanin est fin.

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.

Le Guide Hachette des Vins

Wine rated (guide 2017) : 1*Étoile (Vin très réussi)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : Wines regularly rewarded (The wines of this producer are regularly rewarded by the guide)

About this wine : Comme à son habitude, Julien Seydoux livre un vin dense et riche, typique de l'appellation. L'olfaction révèle des arômes de groseille et de myrtille associés à des parfums épicés et empyreumatiques (douze mois de fût). Des notes de cannelle et de poivre doux s'invitent dans une bouche ample et persistante, portée par des tanins à la fois fins et serrés. Un vin complexe et complet, 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.
