    September 27, 2021 - 2006 Bordeaux Horizontal: The 2006 Figeac expresses admirable freshness with its green peppercorn spice and while it has better delineated fruit in its red and black plum aromas than many of its 2006 left bank counterparts, it still comes off a bit light-footed for a vintage that was reputed to be reasonably good in Pomerol (and we are on the border at Figeac, after all).

    July 2, 2021 - Nose is extroverted with cedar and incense notes. Creamy bouquet with no hint of alchohol. Palate is a bit simple and thin. But sufficiently enjoyable with a meal. Length and intensity could be better. Double whammy of the figeac style in a lean year

    December 13, 2020 - Left opened in the bottle for ~45mins. Lovely nose, complex with black fruit, licorice, cedar in a herbal frame. Medium bodied with balancing acidity, tannins not yet integrated, ripe fruit with great balance, smooth and savoury, not very deep but the balance is just great. Long finish with herbal and mineral nuances. Overall feels relatively primary for its age. Lovely drink. 93-94

    July 8, 2020 - A very enjoyable wine. Blackberries, licorice, tobacco. Fine, well-integrated tannins, rather long finish. Makes you want more. At its high, but will last at least 5 years longer.
