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.

One of my favorite wines from the tasting! A medium nose intensity of plums, licorice, black pepper, roasted spices, red currants and bramble berries. The palate is extremely complexity and balanced with cassis, blackberries, oregano, dried crushed leaves, charred wood, oak, smoke, all framed by bright minerality. #MWtasting

(17/20) Всё ещё молодое вино с ароматами спелых ягод чёрной смородины, ежевики, чёрной сливы, кедра, лакрицы. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными танинами. Танины уже начали округляться, но не вполне созрели. Насыщенно ягодное во вкусе с нотами кедра и шоколада.
