This on the other hand offers up a more feral nose full of ass, leather, light toast, intense with more earth and iron rich greens than the Troplong though similarly beefy. Rich and packed with soft tannins this has a very appealing mouthfeel with great red berry fruit up front leading to an almost praline cream and mocha tinged midpalate that is folowed by a short, tight finish. An interesting combination of wood and fruit notes that still needs time to integrate but seems to have excellent balance and a promising future. Give it 3-5 years.

This is a strong effort for Figeac but the wine is fully mature and is beginning to fade slightly. It offers a terrific bouquet of roasted herbs cedarwood licorice sweet cherries and background foresty/underbrush notes a fleshy attack medium body sweet fruit and plenty of glycerin but the tannins provide a pinched finish that evaporates quickly leaving only astringency. This wine tires within 45 minutes of opening so it needs to be drunk over the next 4-5 years Robert Parkers Wine Adv

Ruby color. Interesting aromas of plums leaves and berries. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and a ripe fruit and chocolate aftertaste. Rich and chunky Figeac.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now. 12 500 cases made. JS Wine Spectator.
