Château Fougas 2016

First Ratings

etiq-fm16Château Fougas Maldoror

GOLD MEDAL:
Hot flint notes and spices recall the youth of the vintage. The charm of the wine opens in the mouth with the generosity of an opulent and full-bodied tannin that frames sensations of ripe fruit, prune and fresh leather. Its finish is graceful and balanced .Competition : »Expression Bio of the wines of new Aquitaine 2017″

« Deep nose of black berries with a touch of mint and licorice, the dense and powerful mouth ends on the eucalyptus. »  Rating 90/100 Bettane and Desseauve

« A juicy wine with a pretty core of fruit and firm tannins. Medium body, fresh acidity and a juicy finish. Delicate for a barrel sample. » Score 88-89 James Suckling

 » Ruby dark fruits, some spices, anise nose, blueberries.  Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, blueberries, spices, anise, bit woody finish. »  86-88- My wine and More –Christer Byklum

« Very dry end but very sappy and exciting start even if it falls off a little on the end. You have to admire the ambition! And it’s very obviously not a St-Émilion. Actually tastes more like a leftbank  wine. » Drink 2021-2026  –Jancis Robinson  -Note :16+

« Un nez légèrement herbacé, élégant, iris, un peu réduit aussi. Juteux, sapide, savoureux pour une bouche toute en densité dans l’élégance et la suavité. Massif et parfaitement exécuté. » –  note 16/17 –  Gault Millau

« Floral, with red and dark cherry, plum and licorice on the nose. The wine is medium/full bodied, fresh, earthy and bright ». 88–89-THE WINECELLAR Insider

« A slightly herbaceous nose, elegant, iris, a little reduced too. Juicy, flavourful, tasty for a mouth full of density in elegance and sweetness. Massive and perfectly executed. »- Rating 16/17 – Gault Millau

« Eine recht intensive Kirschfrucht und leicht aldehydige Noten. Weich am Gaumen, sandiges Tannin, ausgewogen und adrett – ohne besonderen Tiefgang, aber solid and in seinem mittelgewichtigen Stil recht klassisch. Erscheint durchaus bewertbar, die leichten Oxidations zeichen verschwinden im Glas. Dennoch mit leichtem Vorbehalt « . Rating 89-92 Ulrich SAUTTER Weinverstand

MOSER by Falstaff – Rating 90 – (Futures Tasting – April 2017)

« A slightly herbaceous nose, elegant, iris, a little reduced too. Juicy, flavourful, tasty for a mouth full of density in elegance and sweetness. A massive and perfectly executed coast. Real guard potential. Rating 17-EXPRESS SUPPLEMENT 7 JUNE 2017

« Garnet dress with a nice nose of a great frankness. The wine is very elegant kept by a fine merlot of great finesse, the wine has charm, the tannins are light and fine. A beautiful success in a delicate and refined style. This wine of great regularity was elaborated with 95% of merlot and 5% of cabernet -sauvignon ». Rating 16.5 / 20.
