Coming from vineyards close to Diedier Barral’s (of domaine Leon Barral), the 2013 Faugères Impertinent is an entry level effort that’s made from a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Brought up mostly in stainless steel, with a small part in foudre, it offers a beautiful, rounded and supple texture to go with classic notes of licorice, herbes des Provence, spice and raspberry and black raspberry-like fruit. It has a savory character on the nose, yet there's excellent ripeness on the palate, as well as good tannin quality. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming 4-6 years. RP90.
