2009 La Tour Figeac, St-Emilion

SKU #1129801 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of blueberries, with a toasted oak and meat character. Full-bodied, with soft and velvety tannins and a berry, toasted oak finish. Rich, yet subtle. Needs at least three or four years to come together. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The finest wine yet made by this estate run by Stephane Derenoncourt's wife, Christine, this blend of 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc tips the scales at 14+% alcohol. It exhibits copious aromas of blueberries, raspberries, asphalt, truffles, charcoal and a hint of graphite. Full-bodied and powerful with low acidity, excellent freshness and precision, and deep, glycerin-imbued, high octane flavors, the vintage’s tell-tale voluptuousness and opulence are nicely wedded to a sense of freshness and delineation. Drink this beautiful St.-Emilion over the next two decades. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Cellar Selection* Deliciously perfumed wine, full of the ripest fruit along with smoky tannins. It revels in the bright fruit flavors that add to the pleasure. This is a wine that will develop relatively quickly, although it will age as well. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A dense, fleshy style, with mouthfilling raspberry and boysenberry pâte de fruit notes, layered with apple wood, espresso and loam. There's plenty of weight on the finish, with a slightly chunky feel and a lovely echo of dark fruit and tobacco. Best from 2014 through 2024. Inner quote mark (3/2012)

K&L Notes
