Yon Figeac 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

92-95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2015 Yon-Figeac is super-impressive. Deep, unctuous and powerful, the 2015 possesses remarkable intensity to match its voluptuous, flamboyant personality. Readers should expect a full throttle, modern Saint-Émilion built on concentration and textural richness. All the elements are very nicely balanced throughout." 4/16 Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Château Yon-Figeac has an intense bouquet of red berry fruit, pomegranate and crushed strawberry, though I detected an herbaceous vein just underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with toasty tannin. This is quite bold and assertive in the mouth with plenty of grip on the oaky finish. It just needs to calm down once in bottle, the component parts needing to knit together convincingly." 4/16 #224

Built in the XIXth on land bought from Chateau Figeac in 1874, Château Yon-Figeac is located between the well-known cities of St-Emilion and Pomerol. This estate of 25 hectares was in the Lussiez family for generations before being sold to Vignobles Bernard Germain in the 1980's and then being bought by Vignobles Alain Chateau who also have wine estates in the Loire valley in 2005.

color: mixture between ruby red, brown and orange nose: fruit and earth (blackberry, blackcurrant, fig, moss) taste: supply yet full with herbal influences revealing next to the fruit and earth. The tannins are still rich and not too soft. finish: medium, with some dominance of the earthy and herbal notes.

Lean and sleek, keeping its ripe blueberry and currant in proportion with hints of cedar and dark chocolate as the finish lingers. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Drink now through 2017. 1,800 cases imported. -HS (61% cabernet sauvignon and 39% shiraz): Glass-staining ruby. Spicy red berry and floral aromas, with notes of cherry pit and violet in the background. Tangy and nicely focused, with a slightly tart edge to its redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors. The cherry note carries through on the brisk, linear finish. No excess fat on this one. Blended of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Shiraz, the 2009 The Scribbler Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz has a deep garnet-purple color and notes of crushed black currant, warm blueberries and hints of dusty earth and graphite. Medium to full-bodied with medium-firm chewy tannins and crisp acid, it's just a little astringent in the long finish. Drink it now to 2015.

This is our second release of Trés rosé. We continue to make this wine in the saignée method; free run from our Boushey vineyard Sangiovese and Den Hoed Mourvèdre production is reserved for this lot. The juice is co-fermented in stainless steel and primary fermentation stopped at about 2% residual sugar. Notes of strawberry, cherry pie, rhubarb are very prominent and flavors give way to red apple Peel and pomegranate. We discovered a long-evolving, sweet finish with a kiss of cinnamon and cherry pie. And the color is so cool I want to wear it! This wine is perfect for hot summers in the cool shade. Drink with appetizers, through dinner and with dessert too!

This wine is fantastic for your summer BBQs and get-togethers. A semi-dry rose that will refresh and delight on warm summer days.

A delicate nose of violets and cassis leads on to a rich, well-structured palate of black pepper, dark chocolate, kirsch and damson.

This lower pedigree wine represents undeniable quality value rapport in 2005. This vintage is so deep in quality among the better run, less heralded estates, that these wines should appeal to readers looking for terrific values from Bordeaux. Most of these wines are Merlot-based and will be drinkable young.
