Chateau La Tour Figeac, Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe, Bordeaux, France, 2004  

Grapes: 60% Merlot & 40% Cabernet Franc. Biodynamic production.

"Christine Derenoncourt, the wife of one of Bordeaux’s leading winemaking gurus, Stephane Derenoncourt, has fashioned one of the finest wines La Tour Figeac has yet produced. A blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc from a bio-dynamically farmed vineyard, and produced from yields of 22.5 hectoliters per hectare, this is a gorgeously fragrant 2004 offering scents of incense, black cherries, raspberries, currants, and notions of white chocolate as well as earth. With a lush, medium to full-bodied texture, surprising opulence, good acidity, and a layered finish, this impressive offering should drink well for 12-15 years. Moreover, it should be reasonably priced."

(90-92/100) points, Robert M. Parker Jr, Wine Advocate, April 2005 

 "Very dark crimson, though with no blue left. Interesting nose – not simple fruit by any means… Smooth and succulent, more forward than most. Very long and actually pretty convincing! Lots there and very well balanced."

16.5/20 points, Jancis Robinson, Jancisrobinson.com, July 2009
