1996 Figeac, St.-Emilion

SKU #110411 Decanter

Outer quote mark Voluptuous palate, with rounded plum fruit supported by spiciness and emphatic tannins and acid. Inner quote mark (9/1999)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very rainy growing season. 50% of grapes selected. (tasted from) Magnum. Solid, masculine nose. Looks much older than the 1998 magnum just tasted! Mid ruby. Strong fibre of minerality. Relatively light weight. Marked acidity and very cool. Some might call this skinny but it opened out in the glass and became sweeter. 17/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red, with a hint of amber at the rim. Roasted red plum, redcurrant, tobacco, humus and nutty oak on the nose. Sweet, slightly decadent flavors are deeper than those of the '96. A bit more supporting structure here. But also slightly dry on the finish, with reasonable length. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/1999)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A light '96, but offers some very pleasant berry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Medium- to light-bodied, with fresh fruit and a light finish. Best after 2000. (JS) Inner quote mark (1/1999)
