Château Figeac St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

$185

This is subtle and complex, showing blackberry, fresh tobacco and light vanilla, with a hint of Indian spices. Full-bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Refined and classy. The best modern wine from this producer. Best after 2015... Wine Spectator

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.

A bit heavy on Brett in 2005 to allow the wine to express the glorious fruit and structure that's there. Too bad, this would have sung.

One of the best SE I've had, especially for the price, but my son said it lacks a bit of contextual depth.

Still grippy and bright. I think the reputation outpaces the actual wine a bit. Very enjoyable, but I also didn't have to buy it.
