Château Jean Faure St Emilion Grand Cru 2009
90-93 points Wine Spectator: "But how about a Bordeaux fixer-upper? One in St.-Emilion, located right next door to the famed Château Cheval-Blanc? Now that's jumping into the deep end. But it's exactly what Olivier Decelle and his wife, Anne, have done". This is the oldest surviving wine producing château in Saint-Emilion comes this incredible Grand Cru wine. Sensationally moreish, fragrant and textured wine created by the renowned Olivier Decelle. If you like Cheval Blanc 2009 (£900 a bottle), you'll love this! Red wine at its best ....

About the Producer
Château Jean Faure is located in the illustrious Saint-Emilion region of Bordeaux, just a stone's throw from Cheval Blanc. Part visionary, part taskmaster, and 100% dedicated to world-class Bordeaux, Olivier Decelle has in a few short years, transformed the long-neglected estate of Jean Faure to Grand Cru Classe status. History counts for a lot in the world of French wine. The 1855 classification of Left Bank châteaus remains an integral part of the Bordeaux culture today, for example. The St.-Emilion classification riles up the Right Bank appellation every 10 years when it is redone. Château Jean-Faure was originally a well-respected grand cru classé, but it was dropped from the classification in 1986 and it had languished ever since. It has regained the Grand Cru Classe appellation in 2012 under the ownership of Olivier Decelle.
The aroma is reminiscent of freshly laid tarmac combined with a baked raspberry character, setting the scene for the plush and broad mouthfeel that is both succulent and glossy. Ripe and juicy red and black fruits mingle with sweet spices and hints of liquorice. The tannins are evident but sit in the background, making this a wine that fills the palate with gentle textures. Ideal for drinking over the next 5+ years.
