Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

Deep purple-black colored, the 2020 La Tour Figeac comes bounding out of the glass with rambunctious scents of stewed black cherries, mulberries and boysenberry preserves, plus wafts of spice cake, dark chocolate and aniseed. The medium to full-bodied palate is filled with spicy black fruits with a plush texture and just enough freshness, finishing savory.

Neal Martin

The 2020 La Tour Figeac offers intense blackberry and briar scents on the nose, then turns quite floral, iris and incense surfacing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly dry, chalky tannins. Firm and a little brusque toward the finish, it needs more refinement and harmony by the time of bottling. A second bottle had a little more substance and persistence on the finish, suggesting that the 2020 may end up at the top of my banded score.

Michael Schuster

(70% M, 30% CF; 32hl/ha; 14% ABV)
Freshly ripe, quite intense, a crisp black-fruit nose, and yet clearly a warm vintage character; full, vital in acidity, moderately firm in fine tannin, with an excellent fruit concentration; an attractive length across the palate, with a very sapid quality of tannin, and a very nice fragrant black-fruit persistence. An excellent LTF, which will need a few years to polish but which, as so often, one could drink with pleasure relatively early, too. 2026–40+.

James Suckling

A tight and complete red with creamy and chewy tannins that spread across the palate. Fresh, dark fruit with some citrus and pine undertones. Flavorful finish.

Jancis Robinson

70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc. Cask sample.
Quite gourmand in style with plenty of chewy fruit, the fruit with a sort of natural, earthy edge. Tannins a little sandy and dry and misses a bit of lift but should provide early pleasure.

Antonio Galloni

The 2020 La Tour Figeac is an elegant Saint-Émilion loaded with class. Silky tannins and sweet, perfumed aromatics lend a real air of finesse. Bright red cherry fruit, mocha, cedar, leather and rose petals grace this understated, wonderfully classy 2020. All the elements are nicely balanced. I love the energy here.

Jeff Leve

Quite floral in nature, the medium-bodied wine presents its refined take on black raspberries, cocoa, plum, smoke, spice and licorice. Silky, polished, fresh, and elegant, this is top vintage for La Tour Figeac. 92-94

Jeb Dunnuck

Lots of black raspberries, blueberries, mulberries, and cedarwood notes emerge from the 2020 Château La Tour Figeac, which appears to easily be in the same qualitative ballpark as the 2015, 2015, and 2018. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, polished, and balanced, with lots of jammy fruits and floral notes, it should benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15.

Decanter

Tasted by Jane Anson(at Primeur week tastings in Bordeaux, 01 May 2021)

Powerful depth of colour and flavour. This starts out well, with pep, just loses a little power through the mid palate, but picks itself back up with a peppery finish. A little held back by the tannic structure at this point, with the low yields giving extra intensity, but no question there is real momentum here. In the third year of organic conversion. A yield of 20hl/ha. New harvest reception in this vintage with an additional round of grape sorting.
