Lot #205. Figeac 2000

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 94 JG.
". . . tones of old school claret, and to my palate, I see nothing amiss with the youthful aromatic and flavor profiles of this very deep, pure and soil-driven Figeac. The complex and utterly classic nose jumps from the glass in a superb mélange of cherries, raw cocoa, fresh herb tones, just a touch of youthful bell pepper, beautifully transparent, gravelly soil tones, a bit of menthol, nutskins and new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very reserved at the present time, with a wonderfully sappy core of fruit, ripe tannins, tangy acids and stunning length and grip. This is still very young, but I have absolutely no reservations that in the fullness of time this will be a stunning vintage of Figeac." View From the Cellar, Jan/Feb 2012, Issue #37
Provenance: The Luciole Cellar
