"The 2009 is possibly the best Cap de Faugeres yet made, a sleeper of the vintage, and a realistically priced one at that. A blend of 85% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon that hit 14% natural alcohol, the wine displays loads of charcoal, blackberry, espresso roast and white chocolate. It is full-bodied, unctuously textured, with very sweet tannin and stunning purity, texture and length. This is a super-duper wine, bottled unfined and unfiltered under the guidance of the consultant Michel Rolland. Drink it over the next 10+ years."-Robert Parker

2010 Clos les Lunelles Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux

"This sports some toasty punch, with dark fig, blueberry sauce and blackberry notes laced with ample toast. A hefty style, but nicely rounded."
-Wine Spectator, 89 to 92 pts.

"A sensational wine made from 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc from yields of 25 hectoliters per hectare, and by far the most alcoholic of all the Perse estates (14.4%), this is also the most concentrated and densest wine of the appellation, coming from the clay and limestone plateau of the Cotes de Castillon. A full-bodied beauty, opaque purple in color, with notes of cassis, black raspberry, licorice and camphor, some smoky oak is also present in this super-intense, uber-concentrated wine, which transcends the appellation. Drink it over the next decade. A sleeper of the vintage." -Robert Parker
