This is phenomenal on the nose with blackberries, fresh cep mushrooms, forest fruit, and earth. Turns to hazelnuts and dark berries. Subtle. Breathtaking.

Subtle. Breathtaking. It's full-bodied on the palate, with superb tannins that last for minutes. The flavor is subtle yet incredible. Love the texture. It is the same wonderful quality level as 2009. This is so fabulous to taste now, but so much better in 2018.

This is very tight, showing a prominent roasted apple wood and bittersweet cocoa frame more today, though the core of dense currant paste, blackberry pâte de fruit and plum sauce waits in reserve. Gorgeous... This is very tight, showing a prominent roasted apple wood and bittersweet cocoa frame more today, though the core of dense currant paste, blackberry pâte de fruit and plum sauce waits in reserve. Gorgeous singed spice, anise and toasted fig bread notes flitter through the finish, though this needs some time in the cellar to resolve itself fully. A very distinctive, structured expression of St.-Emilion. Best from 2016 through 2035. – JM

In 2010, it is complex with a dense structure, tight mineral texture and dense wood. Underneath, the ripe black fruits bring the promise for the long-term future. Give this wine at least 10 years.

Fresh herbs dark ripe berries licorice cassis and green peppercorn aromas fill the perfume. Full bodied tannic and slightly austere in character with intensity licorice and bright black cherry flavors this is a successful vintage for the traditionally styled Figeac.

Very dark purplish crimson still. Remarkably voluptuous nose – almost Napa Valley! But there is lovely freshness and rigour – and cleanliness – on the palate. Really brisk and Cabernet but with no suggestion of austerity. Should be a very fine Figeac. 18/20

Planted to 35% cabernet sauvignon 35% cabernet franc 30% merlot. Gravely soils. Darkly colored the aromas are hard to discern at this point with faints hints of fresh earth and green spices popping up. Medium weight the subtle flavors lean towards fresher aspects than deeply fruited ones. Some harder tannins and roasted coffee flavors combine on the finish. Enjoy in 5 years and over the next 10-15.

Cassis, blueberry, flowers and clove on the precise, vibrant nose. Then tight and imploded on the palate, with an almost minty, peppery austerity to the black and blue fruit flavors; hardly your typical 2010! This very pure, spicy Saint-Emilion has the structure of a cabernet, and its youthfully forbidding tannins call for at least eight years of patience. It will merit an even higher score if it blossoms in the bottle. 91+

2010: This is one of the few instances where the 2008 performed better than the 2010 when tasted side by side. Trust me there is nothing wrong with the 2010 as it possesses excellent possibly outstanding black raspberry... 2010: This is one of the few instances where the 2008 performed better than the 2010 when tasted side by side. Trust me there is nothing wrong with the 2010 as it possesses excellent possibly outstanding black raspberry blueberry earth and acacia flower-like characteristics. The wine's soft tannin medium-bodied mouthfeel and less massiveness than most 2010s suggest it will be ready early and drink well for a decade.
