Chateau La Tour Figeac 2005

93 points- Wine Enthusiast:

"Very straight, firm, a wine that seems to be developing slowly. The blackberry fruits are impressive, rich and pure, and the tannins form a dense core of darkness. The wood is currently showing too strongly, but the fruit will certainly open out in a year or so. An impressive wine, but it needs time."

91 points- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate :

"This sexy, seductive St.-Emilion is a combination of primarily Merlot and small amounts of Cabernet Franc. Well-integrated acidity, sweet, velvety tannin, and a gorgeous bouquet of black fruits, earth, roasted herbs, cedar, and fruitcake make for a sensual, endearing wine. In the mouth, the silky texture, full body, and chocolate, black cherry, and licorice-infused blackberry flavors add additional opulence and voluptuousness to this beautifully pure, expansively flavored effort. Consume this sleeper of the vintage now and over the next 12 years."

90 points- Wine Spectator:

"Offers mineral, blackberry and currant on the nose. Full-bodied, with coffee, dark chocolate and berry character and a long finish. Silky and refined. Best after 2011."
