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!

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 Franc and half Sauvignon. Remaining 34% is Merlot. Impressive length, complexity and structure. Sophisticated stuff. In full bloom right now.

ATTENTION! I'm well in the process of tasting app. 290 2018s from Bordeaux sent to my Copenhagen home. 2018 vintage is now 100% bottled with very few exceptions, and it'll be incredibly fascinating to find out if the promises from tasting barrel samples can be confirmed.
