This great wine displays a distinctive rich nose that has wonderful aromatic complexity. On the palate, the Cabernet Sauvignon reveals lovely floral aromas in the first year then, as the wine ages, great structure on the palate. The Cabernet Franc brings lots of freshness in the tannins, and the Merlot contributes roundness and flesh. The attack on the palate is clean, the texture is silky, and the complexity elegant. The characteristic freshness of FIGEAC is underpinned by great length of flavor. With its long ageing potential, the wine goes on in time to reveal hints of forest floor, leather, cigar-box and liquorice - always with its hallmark elegance.
