The 2015 La Tour Figeac presents a distinctly savory profile. Iron, smoke, tobacco and earthy notes dominate, while the fruit is pushed into the background. I very much like the energy here, but would like to see a bit more depth and sweetness through the middle. The blend is 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. Christine Derenoncourt and Julien Lavenu are the consulting winemakers. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 La Tour Figeac was very backward and unresponsive in the glass, despite vigorous coaxing. The palate is better with quite rigid tannin, plenty of freshness, a little sultry compared to its peers, but with good density on the finish. I suspect this may merit a higher evaluation after bottling - broody now, but sure to mellow by the time of bottling. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2038

A full body, chewy wine with lots of blackberry and dark chocolate character. Straight in. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

A Stéphane Derenoncourt wine. Polished and lively with real excitement and meatiness. Waltzes! Good stuff. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2034

Well known to lovers of under-valued St Emilion, this property close to the border with Pomerol has made an ambitious, age worthy wine in 2015. Structured tannins, toasty oak and plenty of dark berry fruit are underpinned by acidity. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2022-2030
