Chateau Jean Faux Bordeaux Superieur 2015

Delightful black currant and plum fruit has a gently steeped profile, picking up light anise, tobacco and singed juniper notes for background and length- Wine Spectator.
The 2015 Jean Faux wraps around the palate with notable depth and intensity. Silky, sumptuous and forward, the 2015 offers striking intensity to match its unctuous, inviting personality. Succulent black cherry, plum, violets, mint and lavender add the closing shades of nuance- Vinous, Antonio Galloni.
