Tasting Notes

Sporting a medium to deep garnet-purple color, the 2018 Petit-Figeac has a very pretty nose of Black Forest cake, mulberries and raspberry leaves, leading to suggestions of cinnamon stick, rose oil and tilled soil. The medium-bodied palate has all the class of its big brother, Figeac, if slightly less intensity and layers, offering soft, skillfully managed tannins and seamless freshness to support the earth-laced black fruit layers, finishing long and earthy. This is an impressive second wine that really does have the same compelling personality of the grand vin!

Score: 91

The 2018 Petit Figeac has an opulent bouquet with blackcurrant, cassis and light kirsch aromas. The palate is rich and quite powerful for a second wine, grippy tannins with blackcurrant, fig and cocoa notes, but at least fresh on the finish with a saline aftertaste. Give it three years in bottle.

Score: 87 - 89
