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.

An exception for the right bank, Figeac is composed of 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and only 30% Merlot. My favorite of the right bank flight, and a serious contender for wine of the night! The Figeac was natural, effortless claret that had a lovely herbal bouquet with hints of both olives and chocolate. This had the complexity, but also the drinkability that makes me want to spend more time and drink more of it. It was flawless texturally; layered, medium bodied and fresh and lifted on the back end. Lots of flavor and complexity can be had here without any cost to freshness… But your wallet will feel it! What a bottle!

Like fine Burgundy, this graceful and beautifully mature wine, shows layers of sweet red summer berries, wet autumn floor, cedar wood, aged tobacco and roasted herbs. The elegant and perfectly defined palate combines inner sweetness and a fresh, fruity finish which ONLY can derive from Bdx. Top-notch showing!

2017 is a fascinating vintage for Bordeaux in which the character of many wines on the Right Bank is shaped by frost....
