Lot #145. Figeac 1998

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 JG.
"The deep and utterly beautiful nose soars from the glass in a blaze of black cherries, plums, a touch of dark chocolate, Cuban tobacco, sweet nutskins, fresh herbs, soil and a stylish base of new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and utterly classic on the attack, with a sappy core of fruit, beautiful soil inflection, ripe, suave tannins and laser-like focus on the impeccably balanced and very long finish. This has everything going for it and all that is needed now is patience. A brilliant vintage of Figeac that completely avoids some of the overripe fruit character that mars some of the other Right Bank wines in 1998." View From the Cellar, Jan/Feb 2012, Issue #37
Provenance: The Clairmont Cellar
