Faugeres 'Cuvee Jadis' Leon Barral 2013

Faugeres 'Cuvee Jadis' Leon Barral 2013

The colour delights being blackish-purple, almost opaque. Ripe plum and black-cherry scents dominate a fruit-forward aroma, but there's plenty of earth to please the truffle-hounds. Leather and pleasant "barnyard" notes add complexity.

Full-bodied, juicy and tart flavours, fresh black fruit and a hint of dark chocolate, nicely structured by crisp acidity. Smooth tannins emerge  in a long finish, with a distinct whiff of fresh herbs and earthy grace notes that mirror the nose.
