    Chateau Faurie de Souchard 2016: a deep and structured Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

    A Grand Cru classified of Saint-Emilion, the Chateau Faurie de Souchard is a red wine from a 12-hectare vineyard. Aged 20 years on average, the vines are planted on a clay slope and at the foot of the slope from sand and clay. The estate makes a blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Chateau Faurie de Souchard 2016 is in barrels for 14 to 16 months depending on the plots, with a proportion of 75% in new barrels and 25% in old ones.

    The Chateau Faurie de Souchard 2016 develops a rather opulent and concentrated bouquet with aromas of black cherries and raspberry coulis. On the palate, there is a structured attack with touches of tobacco. This is a profound wine that offers a superbly structured finish.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Faurie de Souchard reveals crushed raspberries, warm red and black cherries and chocolate box scents with hints of wood smoke, tilled soil and dried herbs. Medium-bodied and wonderfully elegant in the mouth, it has exquisitely ripe tannins and just enough freshness to support the delicate flavors, finishing perfumed.
