1998 95p

Tasted in March 2017. This vintage at Figeac has a great reputation among wine-freaks and it was confirmed with aplomb when tasted in 2017. Sensual, classy, fruity and aromatic nose of cherries and raspberries, as sensual on the palate, deep, sophisticated and long. Really great effort for this property!

1996

1983 94p

Tasted in February 2020. Powerful nose of ripe raspberries, concentrated on the palate, showing great finesse and elegance, great complexity and depth. Quite a delightful wine.

1975 94p

Tasted in February 2020. This property has usually 66% Cabernet in the blend with half Cabernet Franc and half Cabernet Sauvignon. The remaining 34% is Merlot. Impressive length, complexity and structure. Sophisticated stuff. In full bloom right now. 

1966
