Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2008
This is subtle and complex showing blackberry fresh tobacco and light vanilla with a hint of Indian spices. Full-bodied with super well-integrated tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Refined and classy. The best... This is subtle and complex showing blackberry fresh tobacco and light vanilla with a hint of Indian spices. Full-bodied with super well-integrated tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Refined and classy. The best modern wine from this producer. Best after 2015.

The predominance of Cabernet Sauvignon in Figeac has won out in 2005. It shows in the delicious black currant fruits and very fresh vibrant acidity. The tannins curiously are less apparent-maybe all that fruit overwhelms... The predominance of Cabernet Sauvignon in Figeac has won out in 2005. It shows in the delicious black currant fruits and very fresh vibrant acidity. The tannins curiously are less apparent-maybe all that fruit overwhelms them. Only on the finish is there some austerity and firmness. R.V.

Good full medium ruby. The nose offers blackcurrant licorice graphite violet minerals and exotic spices. Broad suave and fine-grained on the palate with fleshy but sharply focused flavors of currant minerals and tobacco... Good full medium ruby. The nose offers blackcurrant licorice graphite violet minerals and exotic spices. Broad suave and fine-grained on the palate with fleshy but sharply focused flavors of currant minerals and tobacco. Finishes classically dry and very long. This is St. Emilion with Pauillac and Graves qualities-and a superb vintage for this chateau whose wine is easy to underrate in the early going.
