Magnum, Chateau de la Liquiere, Faugeres Rouge, 2019

The estate’s principal wine, an unoaked, life-enhancing blend of Grenache and Syrah with a little Carignan and Mourvèdre. Youthful, vibrant purple. A lively and concentrated blast of fresh blackberry, blackcurrant and black cherry fruit. Transparent and expressive – a classic example. Now-2024

“Smells like hot plum jam on a leather saddle, like a blueberry pie that’s been pulled out of the oven just in the nick of time.I wondered if this was going to turn out a bit too funky when I first smelt it, but the fruit is philharmonic. Burly, but Rubenesque. Ram-packed with bramble berries and blackberries and hedgerow leaves and stems and rock dust. Despite all the fruit, there is a neat, long bitter spine that tastes as if it’s been spliced from quinine, black-olive pomace, grapefruit pith and wormwood, so the wine, as a whole, is not a fruit bomb but something far more interesting. This is a wine with the identity of Faugères tattooed onto its soul. The wine defines Faugères; Faugères defines the wine. GV. 16.5/20” Tamlyn Currin, jancisrobinson.com, 20th May 2021
