This has good weight with fleshy plum and boysenberry notes and a lively licorice snap edge that fills in on the finish. Nice mouthfeel and purity.-J.M.

The palate is ripe on the entry with firm clean tannins. It has a good backbone a masculine La Tour Figeac but there is fine minerality and terroir expression coming through on the finish. This is very fine. Tasted April 2012.

The 2011 La Tour Figeac boasts a dark ruby/purple color as well as sweet notes of black cherries, black currants, forest floor and flowers. Rich on the attack and mid-palate, and narrowing slightly in the finish, it is a complete, relatively concentrated St.-Emilion that should provide enjoyable and complex drinking over the next 10-12+ years. It is a sleeper of the vintage. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Planted to 60% merlot and 40% cabernet franc. This 14.5-hectare property sits on gravelly-sand soil on the St. Emilion-Pomerol slope near Cheval Blanc.

This 14.5-hectare property sits on gravelly-sand soil on the St. Emilion-Pomerol slope near Cheval Blanc. Exhibits fresh fruit and a mint and menthol brightness on the nose. The fresh tangy fruit continues on the palate with a caramel nuance. Tight with lots of structure and grip this wine exudes the earth-driven Burgundian qualities that are present in many 2011s. Balanced and racy it will become much more elegant over the next 3-5 years and can be enjoyed through 2023.
