91-94

This is a presale offer! Full payment is required on all presales. Wine is due in Spring/Summer of 2008.

"The 2005 is the finest La Tour Figeac I have ever tasted, primarily because of the consulting winemaker, Stephane Derenoncourt, whose wife, Christine, is director of this estate. Produced from yields of 28 hectoliters per hectare and a final blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, this cuvee achieved a natural alcohol of 14.4%. The purity, richness, extraordinary texture, and notes of blueberries, blackberries, cassis, licorice, pain grille, and white chocolate are as seductive as one could want. In the mouth, there is uncommon texture, opulence, and length. This is a beautifully pure, full-throttle offering from a bio-dynamically farmed vineyard. Don’t miss it as the price is relatively low for the quality level. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2024"
