Find Chateau La Tour Figeac prices and retail availability.

Original Tasting and Review:

By way of background: Chateau La Tour Figeac, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux, France, is, for 2007, a blend of 65% merlot and 35% cabernet franc, aged for about a year and a half in about 2/3 new oak barrels.

In the glass: Chateau La Tour Figeac shows as medium deep red in the glass.

On the nose: Poured with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, this Saint-Emilion Bordeaux shows a sweet, new world-influenced currant aroma.

On the palate: The first element on the palate is an odd one indeed - it is mostly like broccoli just about to go bad! There is a full fruit that follows this, then green pepper comes in again.

In summary: Overall, rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for its oddity.
