Château-Cormeil-Figeac Saint Emilion 2011
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
Wine EnthusiastBig, ripe and juicy, this solidly based wine also has great fruitiness. Black fruits, some bitter chocolate and licorice point to ripeness and wood aging. It has a rich texture, its spiciness bringing out the plum and damson fruits. For aging over the medium-term, drink from 2017.
Wine SpectatorThis has a perfumy edge, with light cedar and sandalwood hints weaving around a core of black cherry, plum and red currant preserves. Gentle spice notes shade the finish. Drink now through 2015. 5,000 cases made.
