Wine By Bok - 9/10 Stars

We held a tasting of Bordeaux 85 today with a blend of left and right bank: Mouton Rothschild, Leoville Las Cases, Gruaud Larose, Ducru Beaucaillou, La Lagune, La Gaffeliere, Figeac and Certan de May. Did it deserve a RP86? Vigorously no was my answer, perhaps a 92 to me. It didn’t go downhill like Parker has predicted, instead, I find it fresh, and still some tannins lurking around! The fruits were slightly harsh but it was mellow, very approachable. A controversial label.

Decanter - 95 points 

This has feather-light tannins and is full of sweet plum and raspberry notes alongside truffles, undergrowth and spice - showing all the signature tertiary notes of a great Figeac. It was a cool yet dry year, except for the hot month of September. Even at 30 years old you feel this has further to go. It is right on the plateau now and feeling fine. This wine's effortless and gentle character make it one of my favourites of the tasting. You could overlook this one, but give it a moment and the complexity steals up on you. (11/2019)
