Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep purple-black colored, the 2018 Faurie de Souchard bursts with Black forest cake, Morello cherries and baked plums plus touches of black tea, rose hips, star anise and lilacs. Big, rich, super concentrated and plushly textured, it gives layer upon layer of perfumed black fruits, finishing long and fragrant.
