Tasted from magnum. Thierry Manoncourt has particular affection for vintages that are 'next to the greats' - he cited 1983 and 1971. Wonderfully scented, wild-herby, cedary nose. This was always a great vintage at Figeac. An absolute explosion of chocolate on the palate. So rich, but with great finesse and class, remaining young, like the owner. Marked persistence underneath with stunning sweetness. From bottle in 2010, it has a great chocolate and coffee nose with a touch of cardamom pod. Tremendously fresh and full of sprightly acidity. Damp violets on the finish. Now at its apogee. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
