Rating : Robert Parker 93-95/100
« Coming from a single parcel of Syrah that will see two years in demi-muids and Bordeaux barrels, the 2015 Faugeres Clos du Fou has awesome notes of ripe black fruits, crushed rocks, baking spices and hints of chocolate. Full-bodied, concentrated and layered, with an inherent elegance that’s present in all the wines from this estate, it should drink nicely in its youth, yet keep for a decade. » (Wine Advocate 2017 - Robert Parker)
