Chateau La Tour Figeac Saint Emilion 2001 1.5L
|Brand||Chateau La Tour Figeac|
Wine EnthusiastA deep, intense color leads to aromas of black fruits, sweet tannins and spices. Flavors of cranberries, black plums and dark cherries combine with layers of dry wood tannins into a wine that is still just emerging from its chrysalis. It has great, ripe, jammy Merlot flavors alongside the spice of the Cabernet Franc. Give this wine 10 years.
Wine AdvocateA property on the rebound now that the winemaking is controlled by Stephane Derenoncourt's wife, the deep ruby/purple-colored 2001 La Tour Figeac offers up aromas of fresh figs intermixed plums, cassis, licorice, smoke, and cherries. The complex aromatics are followed by a plush, rich, medium to full-bodied, powerful as well as elegant claret revealing soft tannin in its lusty finish. Drink it over the next 12-13 years.
