Distinctive with atypical (for St.-Emilion) force and drive to the black currant roasted cedar and maduro tobacco flavors which are supported by a dense loam-tinged structure. Terrific roasted espresso ganache and fig paste notes wait in reserve. Very muscular but with the cut for balance. Best from 2017 through 2035. -JM

The wine is perfumed with new wood and sweet fruits delicious black currant flavors giving both ripeness and freshness. The wine has weight and impressive density. A star of the vintage.

(a very moderate 13.5% alcohol for the vintage): Red-ruby. Aromas of redcurrant and plum are complicated by gravel tobacco wild herbs and cedar.

Aromas of redcurrant and plum are complicated by gravel tobacco wild herbs and cedar. Lush suave and seamless with noteworthy energy and a restrained sweetness to the fine-grained flavors of red fruits tobacco and herbs. Insinuating tobacco and cedar notes perfume the mouth as the wine opens in the glass. Very firm wine finishing with noble edge-free tannins lingering spiciness and sneaky length. Quite ripe for Figeac but without any excesses.

35% cabernet sauvignon 35% cabernet franc 30% merlot. Barely opaque in color with a medium broad rim of pale garnet. An aromatic yet elegantly presented bouquet offers up aromas of bright cherry along with loamy earth... 35% cabernet sauvignon 35% cabernet franc 30% merlot. Barely opaque in color with a medium broad rim of pale garnet. An aromatic yet elegantly presented bouquet offers up aromas of bright cherry along with loamy earth. The palate is a medium bodied experience with a focused narrow and compact profile. There's no textural richness here as fresh acids and notable tannins contribute to crunchy cherry flavors on the tight finish. A correct wine but lacking some excitement. Drink up over the next 20 years.
