Château Figeac 2008 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, 1er Grand Cru Classé B 

The nose is fruity, elegant, very slightly tight, gourmand and offers a beautiful delicacy as well as power. It reveals notes of fresh blackberry, wild strawberry and small notes of cassis associated with small / fine touches of blue clay, graphite, spices, caramelization as well as a very discreet touch of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful juiciness, suavity, elegance, a beautiful freshness as well as minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy / fleshy cassis and small notes of blue fruits associated with small touches of raspberry, juicy red berries as well as hints of blueberry, caramelization / toasted hints and a discreet hint of chocolate / minty. Tannins are fine, elegant and a bit firm. Small firmness on the finish. A beautiful and elegant wine.
