Chateau La Tour Figeac Saint Emilion 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Brand||Chateau La Tour Figeac|
93-95. Barrel Sample. This wine is packed with ripe, pure fruitiness. It has delicious black-currant fruits that are shot through with acidity and soft tannins. At the end, attractive freshness is a fine contrast to the structure.
Offers a dense, fleshy feel, with fig and boysenberry compote notes rumbling along, inlaid with graphite and tar accents. Defined and energetic, with notes of anise and ganache adding range through the finish. Tilts toward power rather than finesse in the end. Best from 2022 through 2035. 4,200 cases made.
