International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

($140-$240) Good full medium ruby. The nose offers blackcurrant, licorice, graphite, violet, minerals and exotic spices. Broad, suave and fine-grained on the palate, with fleshy but sharply focused flavors of currant, minerals and tobacco. Finishes classically dry and very long. This is St. Emilion with Pauillac and Graves qualities-and a superb vintage for this chateau, whose wine is easy to underrate in the early going.

While always aromatically interesting, it takes a very warm vintage to make a compelling Figeac, and ?05 is just that. Extremely pleasant in its leafy, floral and almost Burgundian sense of earthiness on the nose, Figeac was actually quite tight on the palate, as the Cabernet seemed to clamp down a bit. In spite of its backwardness, there is a pure core of deep fruit waiting to emerge that may just need some bottle aging to emerge. This estate?s 2000 was a brilliant wine, so ?05 has its work cut out for it but may just have the stuffing to give it a challenge

Dark purple withplum and fig and toast. Very smooth, but lacking a certain depth.
