Château Figeac St.-Emilion 2011

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

A reticent, muscular style, with lots of macerated dark currant and plum notes and ample briary grip cutting through on the finish. This has depth and heft and needs some time to stretch out fully.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Figeac 6000ml

Before our tour begins, in the chateau's main courtyard, it is useful to place Chateau Figeac within the context of its appellation. The Saint-Emilion appellation covers 5,400 hectares, and includes more than 1,200 estates. There are various soil types. The 4 main ones are: Steep limestone slopes located near the town of Saint-Emilion (2,400 hectares), which are responsible for much of the appellation's reputation.

Lovely dark color. Fruity nose of average aromatic intensity. Caressing on entry the wine develops smooth and fruity with good density and a more vivid touch on the second part of the palate. This is an enjoyable wine and true to its style. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com
