The 2018 Petit-Figeac is ridiculously good. The 2018 is a very pretty, mid-weight Saint-Emilion that impresses with its sheer charm and allure, both of which it has in spades. Close your eyes, and just enjoy.

Sporting a medium to deep garnet-purple color, the 2018 Petit-Figeac has a very pretty nose of Black Forest cake, mulberries and raspberry leaves, leading to suggestions of cinnamon stick, rose oil and tilled soil. The medium-bodied palate has all the class of its big brother, Figeac, if slightly less intensity and layers, offering soft, skillfully managed tannins and seamless freshness to support the earth-laced black fruit layers, finishing long and earthy. This is an impressive second wine that really does have the same compelling personality of the grand vin!
