Château Fougas Maldoror

GOLD MEDAL – Concours des vins d’Aquitaine 2014

“Deep black cherry color. Spicy and pure cassis. Finely chewy, smoothed and fresh and an attractive pepperiness. Slight leafiness on the finish adds freshness”.17 Apr 2013 Jancis Robinson

“Good fruit here with plums and blackberries. Medium body, with lovely tannins and a juicy finish. Made from organic grapes”.James Suckling 13 – 04 – 2013

„Riecht nach Bitterschokolade und Kirsche, geradezu nach Schwarzwälder Kirsch, im Mund zeigt sich der Wein kraftvoll, körnig, leicht grün, aber auch saftig und mit guter Fruchtbegleitung, stramm gebauter, kompakter Wein“.WEINVERSTAND Mai 2013- Typ 2 (Klassik).

“Jean-Yves Béchet always makes the appellation’s benchmark wine. Subtle oak supports honest fruit, magnificently lifted through to a vigorous, sound finish”.Le Monde, 08/05/13- Page IV : Le Monde des vins – Rating: 15.5-16/20

“Red fruit, nice fruity palate, tense on the finish. Tannic wine that should mature well”. Jacques Dupont, Le Point page 44 May 2013

“A very intense wine. Soft oak supports honest fruit magnificently lifted through to a vigorous, sound finish”. RVF Special 2012 vintage – June 2013, page 67 – “Outstanding success” (only five vineyards mentioned!)

“Jean Yves Bechet runs his property using biodynamic viticulture and this is a perfect example of how successful ecological wine growing is in a challenging year. Blend: 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet-Sauvignon. A remarkable wine made from a selection of the finest grapes. Open, vibrant nose of blackberry and cassis with refined toasted oak. Striking, gorgeous, full-bodied palate with abundant fruit and savoury balance. One of the top wines in the appellation”. Jean-Christophe Estève, May 2013- Rating: 17.5

“Good expression on the nose with fruit, flowers and a hint of oak. The palate is velvety, delicately fleshy and well-proportioned with a slender body lifted by fresh, expressive fruits. The finish is fresh with good grip, underscored by nicely expressive fruit”. 88-89-Canalblog

Château Fougas Forces de Vie (Organic Premium )

Spices, fruit and a dash of menthol. This is a complex, seductive Côtes de Bourg”. (Rating: 16)- La Revue des Vins de France, December 5, 2014 – (Delicious Bordeaux at reasonable prices)
