    (Chateau Figeac St Emilion) Situated on gravel close to Pomerol, hence an encépagement different to the other estates; Merlot 30%, Cabernet Franc 35%, Cabernet Sauvignon 35%. Lower yields this year, 31 hl/ha. A fairly dense colour here. A superbly full nose. Dark roasted plums, and a fabulous perfume. Some oak too. Elegance and style are plainly evident on the palate. There is not quite the plumpness and the velvet texture of the other wines - because the blend here is heavy on Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon, with less Merlot, I suspect. But there is body, balanced tannin and acids, and good concentration. Black fruits and a violet perfume. And a good length. One of the best wines here.

    (Château Figeac) Nice berry nose; big, fruity, herbaceous, berry, plum palate with a touch of maple; medium-plus finish (35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot)
