Blackberry, blueberry and plum aromas, with hints of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a mineral, currant and licorice aftertaste. A little austere, but structured. Dense. Impressive. Best after 2014. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Figeac 6000ml
