"This has a gorgeous violet edging to the colour with clear oak influence, veering to smoky and working well. There is a clear tightening through the mid palate, as you would expect from the limestone soils, but it will soften over ageing and they have captured plenty of juice running through the blueberry and blackberry fruits. The Denz estates in general have been successful in 2018"

91 Points - James Suckling
"Fresh blueberries, crushed brambleberries and licorice on the nose with a touch of cocoa powder. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, creamy tannins and fresh acidity. Succulent finish. Try from 2022."

"A blend of 85% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, from the cooler Castillon region to the east of Saint-Emilion, the 2018 Château Cap De Faugères reveals a healthy ruby/purple hue as well as lots of pretty red and blue fruits, notes of candied orange, tobacco, and violets, no hard edges, silky tannins, and both beautiful balance and purity. It's a terrific Castillon to enjoy over the coming decade or so."

91 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2018 Cap de Faugères is composed of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon; harvest began on September 22. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with intense scents of preserved plums, kirsch, chocolate box and menthol with hints of woodsmoke and Indian spices. Full-bodied, rich and voluptuously fruited in the mouth, the palate has a velvety texture and plenty of red fruit sparks of freshness, finishing spicy."

Always one of the top Côtes de Castillons"- Robert Parker

Château Cap de Faugères is a 46-hectare, estate in the pretty village of Sainte-Colombe, earning it the appellation of Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux. The vineyard has a fine terroir of limestone and clay slopes, a continuation of that of Saint-Emilion. Sustainable methods of natural viticulture are used to cultivate the vines.

Intense ruby purple, fine edge. Intensity on the nose, a peppery bouquet, red plums, light woods and medium spices. Great structure both savoury and fruitiness. A well-balanced and highly seductive wine.
