Chateau Fayat combines the strengths of three old estates: Commanderie de Mazeyres, Vieux Bourgneuf, and Prieurs de la Commanderie. The 2010 Chateau Fayat is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc from a vineyard stretching over 12.98 ha (32 acres).
The Pomerol displays an intense, dark hue. The nose exudes blond tobacco at first, evolving into prune pit and blackberry. Well-controlled, superb acidity, The 2010 Chateau Fayat shows super balance.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
A straightforward, rather one-dimensional Pomerol made from a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2010 Fayat displays elegance but falls off on the palate. Drink it over the next 10 years.
