The alcohol is more modest at 14% than many other St.-Emilions, but the wine displays a sumptuous personality, with loamy, sandy soil notes interwoven with black currant, blueberry and sweet cherry, some floral nuances and a touch of toasty oak. It is a rich, full-bodied wine with moderate tannin. Give it several years of cellaring and drink it over the following 15 or more years.||Far superior to what I remember tasting from barrel, this 2010 comes from a vineyard that was part of the greater Figeac estate until it was sold off in the late 1800s. The wine is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc made by the other half of the dynamic duo of Bordeaux consultants, Christine Derenoncourt, wife of Stephane. Very low yields of 25 hectoliters per hectare produced a final blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

Abundant ripe Merlot dominated the nose with mulberry, cherry liqueur and crème de cassis: heady and exotic. The palate is rounded, almost mellifluous on the entry, low acidity, layers of decadent ripe red-berried fruit swathed puppy fat, but somehow it manages to retain good definition on the finish. Well crafted. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Firm and silky, with pretty fruit and a minerally aftertaste. Full and fine on the finish. Needs a little more at the end for better numbers. jamessuckling.com

Juicy and focused, with a delicious beam of anise, plum and blueberry. Superbright, with a long finish and a fine-grained structure. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Mid crimson. Hint of damp fur on the nose. Broad and subdued fruit. Not much freshness. A little scrawny on the end. Not overdone but not very exciting. jancisrobinson.com

Pure, fresh, aromatic - a natural, zesty feel to the fruit. Nothing forced. Sweet, ripe mid-palate. Firm finish. Harmonious. James Lawther, decanter.com

La Tour Figeac is made by Christine Derenoncourt, the wife of Stephane Derenoncourt. In 2010, the apple does not fall far from the tree with this wine 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc blend. Licorice, spice, jammy black cherry aromas open to a suave, lush, fennel, spice and ripe dark berry finish. winecellarinsider.com

This is a full bodied red with supple velvety tannins and wonderful aromatics. Seductive on the palate but rather broad in its flavours on the palate. Would like to see more definition and detail. Still a very good wine that will bring much drinking pleasure in the near term. asianpalate.com
