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.

Interesting aromas of cedar, tobacco, dark fruits, cinnamon, and cigar box. Full and solid, with chewy tannins. A very direct, straight, and pure wine with lovely freshness. This is starting to close, give this some time.

Wine Enthusiast, June 2008
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.

A silken, elegant merlot, this has a youthful blue tinge to its color and luscious energy to its plummy fruit. It's bold and powerful, but it doesn't feel pushed.

It's bold and powerful, but it doesn't feel pushed. The pinpoint detail of the tannins provides a beautiful richness that expands with air. A touch exotic, that richness brings Kobe beef to mind, a match for this wine when it's had some time to mature.

Stephen Tanzer's IWC, May 2008
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.
