Weinverstand – Ulrich SAUTTER

« Trotz kräftigen Holzeinsatzes zunächst reduktiv. Dunkle Schokolade. Mit Luft Kirsche und Grüntee. Seidig und saftig am Gaumen, nicht im Übermaß weich, mit reifem, mürbem Tannin und würzigen, ganz leicht Paprika-artigen Gaumenaromen. Appetitlich ausgewogen, salzig mit gut integrierter, milder Säure. »

Falstaff – Peter MOSER

Punkte 89-91/100 « Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung, zart balsamisch unterlegte Nuancen von Dörrzwetschken, kandierte Orangenzesten. Mittlerer Körper, frische Kirschen, gut integrierte Tannine, frisch strukturiert, Noten von Zwetschken im Abgang, ein lebendiger Speisenbegleiter. »

EXPRESS – Pierrick JÉGU – 20 September 2017

« Of the wealth but absolutely no heaviness. Ultrapromising! »

La feuille de vigne, – Mohamed BOUDELLAL – 12 December 2017

« Follower of the biodynamie, Jean-Yves Béchet made of his property one of the references in Côtes de Bourg. To make the most of his vineyard, he distributes the fruit between three vintages of increasing ambition. Good named « Maldoror » represents the heart of its production and gives the example of an accomplished wine and without ostentation. This wine doubles his refinement by a delicious nature and a dynamics of expression in his measure. »

Score 90/100 « The burnt-orange and plum aromas are enticing. The medium to full body gives the firm and silky tannins a nice balance. Tight and focused. Give it two years to come together. Drink in 2020 »

Degustation the 7 December 2017 by Yves BECK

Score 92/100 « 95% merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Garnet red with purple reflections, intense bouquet well marked by wood with roasting notes. I feel also licorice, blackcurrant and some blueberries. Straight and fruity attack. On the palate the wine is sweet, creamy and well supported by its structure. Beautiful aromatic intensity. The tannins are elegant and have a fine grain. They are well integrated and offer excellent support. Bravo, great success. The best Fougas I have ever had to taste. »
