A wine in harmony. Extremely bright aromas of black cherry, berry and plum. Full- to medium-bodied, with good, well-integrated and velvety tannins and a long, fruity aftertaste. Very fine. Best from 2005 through 2012. (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1998 Figeac 750ml
