Château La Tour Figeac 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose offers a small concentration and a fine power. It reveals notes of cassis, wild berries and small notes of flowers (violet, lily) associated with fine touches of cassis bud, blond tobacco, licorice and discrete hints of spices. The wine needs to be put in carafe. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a fine juiciness, a small mineral frame (racy minerality), finesse, suavity as well as a very fine straightness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh blackberry, fresh raspberry and small notes of crunchy / juicy berries associated with small toasted touches, tonka bean and a very discreet hint of flowers. Tannins are fine and well-built.
