Wine Of The Week: Clos Magne Figeac Saint-emilion 2010
“Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.” ― John KeatsI was asked the question recently, do you do Bordeaux? Do I "'do" Bordeaux, ha, did Debbie do Dallas? Hell yes, I do Bordeaux and in my ever not so humble opinion, if you're not into Bordeaux it's only because you don't understand it yet, or you are not able to appreciate it subtleties. For any vinosapien raised up on California wine, Bordeaux is a shock to the system, leaving most folks befuddled by a word not often found in New World wines, restraint. My wine of the week comes from Clos Magne Figeac Saint-Emilion 2010, and unfortunately this vintage is not widely available as yet. This wine did come to my attention via CIVB, who had it. . .
