Bold graphite and milk chocolate, red fruit led a seamless and silky palate that was simply the essence of yummy. A few more years to go but less than 5.

Disjointed and clunky at this stage in its evolution. One part fruit and spice, two parts oak = no bueno. Leave alone for 4-5 years.

The 2010 Figeac has a youthful and exuberant bouquet with black cherries, boysenberry, cassis and violets that soar from the glass. There is no stopping the aromatics here. The palate is rich and sensual on the entry with precocious red fruit laced with blood orange and cedar. It firms up a little towards the structured finish that exerts fine grip and there is real persistence in evidence. This is a very classy 2010 Right Bank, this bottle showing even better than the example at BI Wines & Spirits a few days earlier. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal.

Lovely bottle of Chateau Figeac 1970 this evening. Absolutely stunning - this is one of the best wines of the vintage, and one of the best ever Figeac! Full of those luscious qualities that make this a true left bank Saint-Emilion;-)

Pure Magic. If you thought the 2015 and 2016 were something, this is going to blow you away. On the same level as Ausone and Cheval this vintage. 96-98pts

Drinking really well...Black and crimson in color. Sweet on the nose, a clear floral note. Bright, sweet and hint of smoke. Finish is soft as the tannins are fully resolved. Acid gives this wine length and finish. Has another 10+ easy.

Heaven in a bottle. The 1/3 blends of Cab, Can Franc and Merlot arrived at a beautiful juncture of ever evolving tastes and smells. Served with a perfectly grilled porterhouse. The last slurp was just a bowl full of black cherries. #memorymoment

This really ticks all the boxes for me. It has excellent balanced, beautiful fruit, and lingering mineral qualities. Very much old school in its sensibilities. Unique in its 1/3 cabernet content on the Right Bank.
