2015 Château La Tour Figeac  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

Here's a wine that keeps getting better and better as it ages in bottle. The truffle and floral notes get you going. But perhaps it's the silky, fresh, ripe, sweet, plums and cherries that is the best part. Elegant and classy, this is quite the charmer.

The floral and light truffle notes that accompany the ripe, plum and cherry fruits really stand out. Medium/full bodied, silky, elegant and fresh, the wine ends with polished, sweet, juicy plums and cherries with a touch of licorice in the finish. This turned out better in bottle than in barrel, which is always a good sign.

2005 Château La Tour Figeac  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

The entry is plush, rich and soft. Aromatics were enough to keep me interested, but, I'd like to see this wine in another 5 years to learn how well the oak bonded with the wine.

Fully mature, the wine is medium bodied and on the elegant, finesse side of the style range, focusing on its floral, cherry pipe tobacco, thyme and truffle nose.
