A well-knit, extremely balanced wine, with lovely fruit flavors and an enticing finish. Offers delicate raspberry and other berry aromas, a balance of fine fruit flavors and integrated tannins. Full-bodied and delicious now, but will improve.--Figeac... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1979 Figeac 750ml
