1975 Figeac St Emilion Red Blend
The advanced color suggests a 30-40-year old wine. However, the 1975 Figeac possesses a knock-out bouquet of cedar, ripe, jammy, cherry, and curranty fruit, Asian spices, and herbal tea. The superb nose is followed by a wine that is beginning to dry out, with the tea component becoming more noticeable and the tannin beginning to have the upper hand on the wine's fruit. There are ripe cherry/herb/coffee-like flavors, but this wine may be at the end of its useful plateau of drinkability. Contradicting these observations, the 1975 held up for two days in a decanter before fading. RP
