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;-)

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!

Very slightly but disappointingly corked. It’s pretty damn good underneath though...
