|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Brand||Chateau Grand Barrail Lamarzelle Figeac|
Rich and now smoothly textured, this elegant wine is generous. Tannins still come through the perfumed black-currant fruits, giving a wine that is structured and full while still attractively shot through with acidity. Drink from 2022.
The 2015 Grand Barrail Lamarzelle Figeac offers notable intensity, punch and freshness in a mid-weight style. Bright red cherry, blood orange and floral notes give the 2015 a sense of aromatic lift that is quite appealing. This is one of the more laid-back, refined wines of the vintage. There is plenty to like, especially the direction this wine has taken in the last few years.
Cherry and plum paste flavors are layered with melted red licorice notes, then coated with a hefty dose of toasted vanilla on the finish. Drink now through 2020.
The 2015 Grand Barrail Lamarzelle Figeac is charming, moderately concentrated, medium-bodied Saint-Emilion that offers hints of toasty oak, dried flowers and sweet black raspberry and blackberry jam. It's not a massive wine by any measure, yet is nicely balanced and straight on the palate, with good length. Drink it over the coming decade.
The 2015 Grand Barrail Lamarzelle Figeac is medium garnet colored with an earthy, herbal nose with red and black fruits notions. Medium-bodied, it's a little lean and rustic in the mouth with chewy tannins and an herb-laced finish.
