1970 Figeac, St. Emilion

SKU #950608 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This wine has been fully mature for at least a decade, but it continues to exhibit an herb-, mineral-, and plum-scented bouquet, with ripe, lush, expansive flavors that appear to have put on a bit of weight and intensity since the mid-1980s. The tannins have completely melted away, and the overall impression is one of a round, generously endowed, silky-textured wine. (1/1998). --- A Possible Legend Candidate --- (10/1994)  (1/1998)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Medium garnet; ripe, cedary cassis nose; rich, generous cassis flavor; very concentrated, full, ripe and long  (10/1993)

89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Medium red, with an amber rim. Decadent, mature nose dominated by chocolate, coffee, truffle and underbrush. A rather silky midweight with just enough volume to buffer its slight edge of acidity. Rather developed flavors in the mouth.  (7/2002)

Additional Information:



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
