Lots of potential to go higher here with more time in the bottle. On a Faugeres kick this weekend. Where Barral was more dense and powerful, the Fantine is the female version with more elegance and poise, with a firm backbone of tannin and juicy acidity. Wild flavors of violets, licorice, spice with blueberry and blackberry fruit. Darker but more elegant fruit character intensity. A long finish that tightens up some on the end. #faugeres #fantine

Agree with other recent reviewers--less dense than Barral, more lithe and floral and pretty, so initially more approachable but shut down after seeing some air. A bit of time should help
