Un Faune avec son Fifre 2017 - Clos des fées

Cotes Catalanes

 

94/100 Parker

Ageing capacity : 2022 - 2035

By Joe Czerwinski in 2020: "A tank-aged blend of 60% Cabernet Franc (goblet-pruned), 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2017 IGP Côtes Catalanes Un Faune Avec Son Fifre displays fantastic aromas of violets, cut herbs, black cherry and cassis. This is a big, full-bodied, tannic yet silky wine that stays bright and lively throughout the tasting. Notes of raspberries and black tea appear on the long, complex finish, which bodes well for the future. While not unattainable, I think it will be even better in 2-3 years and drink well for a decade or more after that. There are only a little over 200 cases of this unique and delicious wine in existence."

 

Hervé Bizeul : "Majority of Cabernet-Franc from high quality Massale selection. Planted 6,800 vines per hectare, bush pruning, on individual poles. Parcel facing north on the western side of a limestone cliff. Vines were planted so each stock protects its neighbor from direct sunlight. Merlot located in an area called “Le Clos des Fees”, bush pruning, crowded multi-clonal planting on poles. Harvest done at the end of phenolic maturity. “Mixed bays” vinification done in controlled temperature, with punching down and open pumping over. Barrel aging, partly new, and then in tank until bottling, done early, usually in May/June Objective being finesse, length and salinity for a new expression of this varietal grown on a very fine terroir of clay and limestone. Dark garnet wine, ripe red fruit nose and delicate hints of oven roasted red peppers. Tannic palate, silky, long, distinguished, the term “classic” comes immediately to mind. The label changes every year, the Faune slowly growing up with the wine..."
