The 2005 La Tour Figeac is a stunner of a wine from proprietor Otto Rettenmaier. (The wife of Stéphane Derenoncourt is the consulting winemaker). The estate, which sits on the Pomerol border on what is called the Graves of St.-Emilion, has produced a wine dominated by Merlot, followed by Cabernet Franc. Absolutely extraordinary and one of their great successes, this 2005 is a sleeper of the vintage. Opaque purple, it possesses a beautiful nose of licorice, forest floor, blackberry and cassis fruit. Full-bodied and opulent, with sweet tannin, it is approachable, but with considerable upside still remaining. This wine should continue to drink well for another 15 or more years.| eRobertParker.com.June, 2015
