James Suckling 92-93
A full-bodied red with blackberry, chocolate and some hazelnut. It’s generous and extremely well made for this appellation. So well crafted ! From biodynamically grown grapes. Demeter certification.

“Opaque purple-black colored, the 2020 Fougas Maldoror (a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon) leaps from the glass with vivacious blackberries, black cherries and raspberry scents, followed by
hints dried mint and black olives. The elegantly styled, medium-bodied palate has a great intensity of crunchy black fruits with bright red berry sparks and a grainy texture leading to a nice, long and refreshing finish. An absolutely delicious, well-priced claret, it also happens to be certified organic and biodynamic. One to stock up on! »

Yves Beck Score-90-92
Bouquet marked by notes of red berries and spices. It is inviting and of good intensity. On the palate, the wine is creamy, elegant and well supported by its tannins. The latter slowly reveal themselves and impart fullness. A balanced and fruity wine that has plenty to spend time in the cellar. I think he can still gain flavor expression. Juicy and fruity finish. 2025-2035

Terre de Vins Score 92-93
A wine full of energy and fiery, vinous, powerful, full, irrigated with a beautiful vitality that makes it vibrant and tasty. The attack is creamy, on a nice black fruit coulis. The tannins are firm, finely grainy, the finish is very fresh and thirst-quenching, tasty.

Vert de Vin Score 91-92
The nose is fruity and delivers some greediness, richness (about mastery), smoothness and a low power accompanying a slight concentration. There are some notes of fleshy blackcurrants, also some notes of mashed blackberries and, to a lesser extent, some flavours of cherries associated with hints of violet, dark mashed berries, lily aromas, tobacco, some subtle note of star anise and finally some of chocolate. The mouth is marked by the fruit and provides juiciness, freshness, sweetness (about mastery), a slight length and a controlled final. On the palate the wine unveils some fleshy blackberry notes, brilliant blackcurrant and, to a lesser extent, some notes of blueberries associated with wild raspberries, small mashed red berries, Tonka beans, blond tobacco, cardamom, cloves, flowers and finally a hint of fresh almonds. Good length in the mouth.
