|La Revue des Vins de France||We are impressed by the balance of Château Falfas, the best expression of a Côtes de Bourg in a living wine. Falfas 2012 is a unique expression brought forward by a nose focused on dark berries and red fruits. First come the blackcurrant and blackberry aromas, quickly followed by floral notes. Full-bodied on the palate, the texture lays on a silky tannin backbone as well as on the expression of a fresh ripe fruit.|
