Description

93 Points, CELLAR SELECTION, Wine Enthusiast

While this wine still has serious layers of tannins, it also delivers considerable ripe black-fruit flavors. The estate in the Figeac sector of Saint-Emilion has produced a powerful wine that is firm and that will age further.

92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck – Barrel Sample

Not yet bottled, the 2016 Château Yon-Figeac checks in as a mix of 82% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and the balance Petit Verdot. Sporting a ruby/plum color, it gives up a meaty, earthy bouquet of crème de cassis, tobacco, dried soil, and forest floor. With a rich, mouthfilling style on the palate, it has rock solid tannins, plenty of density and heft, and a big finish. Drink this complex, outstanding Saint Emilion any time over the coming 15 years or more.

90 Points, James Suckling

Very rich dark berries and plums with an attractive and deep, fresh-fruit edge. The palate has a very smooth, fresh and sweetly fruited core with ripe, plush and approachable tannins. A blend of 81 per cent merlot, 13 per cent cabernet franc and six per cent petit verdot.
