“A very enjoyable wine. Keep for a few more years so that it shows at its best. The colour is a very deep red. The nose is delicate and offers up beautiful red and black fruit notes of blackberry and sour cherries. The attack is supple and flows into a gorgeous palate showing an intense fruity balance and fine tannin framework that needs to mellow a little still”. Guide Féret des vins en Biodynamie (page 76) Evelyne Malnic http://www.plusbellelavignebio.com

“A consistent winner from Bourg, the dark plum colored 2010 Fougas Maldoror possesses chocolaty, spices, black cherry fruit intermixed with truffle/earthy notes. Medium-bodied with a slight bit of tannin and good acidity”.
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, May 2011

“Profound nose of black berries with a touch of mint and liquorice. Dense, powerful palate finishing with eucalyptus”. Bettane Desseauve, May 2011

“Black hue. Blackberry and spice on the nose. Dense, tannic palate, fairly mellow with a lovely finish”. Bernard Burtschy, Le Figaro, May 2011

“Behind pronounced oak influence is a silky texutre with candied flavours that are nicely supported by pleasant tannins”. La Revue du vin de France, June 2011, page 65 (Outstanding success)

“Jean-Yves Bechet runs his property entirely using biodynamic viticulture. 100% new oak ageing. Blend: 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet-Sauvignon. This excellent Bourg reveals wonderful expression due to the craftsmanship of the wine grower as well as the vibrant charm of grapes from vineyards grown carefully using organic viticulture. Exuberant nose of an organic wine, red fruits, cherry, violet and raspberry. Vibrant, upright, honest and lively palate laden with fruit and showing remarkable balance”. J-C Estève
