Vintage 2015

The 2015 Petit-Figeac is quite deep and powerful, especially for a second wine. The richness and ripeness of the vintage comes through in the wine's racy, dark profile.

Written Notes

Rich, ripened red fruit driven. Aromatic with a lot of fresh fruit from palate. Nice acidity that only came out gradually. It was quite alike with the Figeac but with less tannin. This second wine is also very good and intense with medium long finish. Another early drinking wine. 91-93
  • 92p
Dark fruits, some spices, fresh, floral, minerals nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fresh, fruity, delicate, elegant, long. 89-91
  • 90p
Deep colour. Fresh aromatic wine with cherry, cassis floral notes and graphite nuances. Lovely supple palate with sweet fruit espresso flavours and fine grainy slightly al dente textures. Inky at the finish with an aniseed kick. Fresh and slinky. Very smooth and delicious to drink. 93 points
