Château Figeac St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

$289

...a crisp blackberry nose, a little closed at first, opening nicely in the glass and offering raspberry coulis, pencil box and subtle mint aromas—classic Figeac in many ways. The palate is extraordinarily well balanced with a fine lattice of tannin sculpted to perfection. There is a slight edginess to this Figeac that I adore, the Cabernets very expressive, more so than the 2015, with graphite infusing every pore of the black fruit. This Figeac has an outstanding structure and a saline finish that beckons you back for another sip. The 2015 Figeac was stunning and the 2016 no less. Tasted on four separate occasions, and in the end, only one (banded) score became inevitable. Drink till 2060. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

If you like bold and borderline overripe, over extracted, and in your face wines, then OK. But this is not Figeac as we came to know it. We like balanced, elegant, very identifiable and complex Figeac as it used to be done. So this is not for us. I know the scores are sky high with top wine tasters, we disagree with them, very clearly so… and are so very disappointed to see the new style. Selling our bottles.

Such a complex velvety beauty. Loved contemplating over this one in Napa.

Mycket cab franc-gräsiga drag i denna. Mörka bär, viol, grus, baconfett, rosor. Trevligt medelfyllig med måttlig alko. Kan nog utvecklas fint.
