Fascinating aromas of tobacco, berry, mineral and dried herbs. Full-bodied, with juicy, fine tannins and a long finish... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Yon Figeac 750ml

A super value, this deep ruby/purple-colored St.-Emilion offers aromas and flavors not too dissimilar from a top vintage of the famed Landrsquo;Evangile. Sweet blackberry and wild mountain berry fruit is interwoven with hints of raisins, plums, and white flowers. Medium-bodied and fleshy, with excellent purity and sweet fruit, this is undoubtedly a sleeper of the vintage. As the wine sits in the glass, more black raspberries seem to emerge. Anticipated maturity: 2006andndash;2015.
