2018 La Tour du Pin Figeac (750ml) »FUTURES«

Merlot from Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France

2018 La Tour du Pin Figeac

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 La Tour du Pin Figeac (Moueix) leaps from the glass with baked blackberries, plum preserves and kirsch notes plus hints of tilled soil and Marmite toast. The full-bodied palate is quite spicy with a firm backbone of rounded tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long.

91-93 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (Issue # Interim - Apr 2019)

The dark purple-hued 2018 Château La Tour Du Pin Figeac offers a fresh, elegant, medium-bodied profile as well as notes of ripe plums, black cherries, and leafy herbs. With rocking purity, moderate tannins, and good acidity, it’s beautiful Saint-Émilion in the making.

90-92 points, Jeb Dunnuck (May 2019)

A potential sleeper in 2018, La Tour du Pin Figeac is dark, sensual and inviting from the very first taste. Ripe, silky tannins wrap around a core of dark cherry and plum fruit. Espresso, mint, licorice and new leather give the 2018 lovely aromatic top notes to balance things out. The 2018 is impeccable from start to finish. Gentle extractions and 60% new wood seem very well judged here.

89-92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Apr 2019)
