Château Figeac Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 1995

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a soft, deliciously forward style of Figeac, which is quite irresistible now! Black currents, herbs and tobacco leap out of the glass in a complex web of delicacy. This will develop even more complexity with a few more years bottle age and will continue to drink well for another 10-15 years.

Best Figeac in years. Loads of blackberry, chocolate and stones. Full-bodied and concentrated with masses of tannins and fruit. Long, long finish. Needs time. Best after 2002. 9,500 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1995 Figeac 750ml
