Château La Tour Figeac 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fresh, fruity and offers a fine intensity. It reveals notes of fresh blue fruits, cassis and more slightly crunchy strawberry associated with subtle hints of lily/lilac as well as discreet touches of chocolate, almond and a very discreet/imperceptible hint of camphor. The palate is fresh, fruity, mineral, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a fine acid frame as well as a small creaminess. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy raspberry and blue fruits associated with small touches of lilac, rose as well as discreet touches of chocolate, liquorice and very fine touches of almond. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length and good persistence. There is a very discreet hint of coffee on the persistence.
