Chateau Figeac 2010
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Grape||Bordeaux Blend, Cabernet Franc, Merlot|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Figeac bursts from the glass with gregarious scents of baked blueberries, black cherry compote and chocolate box with hints of camphor, pencil lead and iron ore. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has beautifully ripe, velvety tannins and bold freshness supporting the generous fruit, finishing long and layered.
Winespectator / James Suckling (98)
Intense aromas of wet earth, leaves, sweet berries and cinnamon follow through to a full body, velvety and dense tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Opulent style. Just opening now, but this shows lots of stuffing, even if it does tighten down on the palate. Integrated and fine.
