There was a fair bit of buzz about this coming in. Nothing smacks you in the face, there is no overwhelming sense of power or energy, just a subtle assured self confidence in this wine. Not over extracted, perfectly judged concentration and pretty focussed forward fruit aromatics. The Cabernets are really performing well this year, deftly exerting control over the narrative of the wine as it meanders across the palate through to a long subtle finish. A marvel for the vintage.

Château Figeac

About Château Figeac Château Figeac Premier Grand Cru Classé (B) dates back to second-century Gallo-Roman origins; Undoubtedly one of the greatest producers and terroirs of the Saint-Émilion appellation, if not the whole of Bordeaux. Mentioned by experts in the same breath as Ausone and Cheval Blanc.   Viniculture Once the largest property in the appellation, many plots were sold over the years to create and enlarge properties like neighbouring Château Cheval Blanc and even Pomerol’s La Conseillante. Figeac has excellent terroir, and after the estate was not awarded Premier Grand Cru Classé (A) status in 2012 there was renewed determination to put the property back to its rightful place at the top of Saint-émilion. Michel Rolland was hired to consult and Frederic Faye was appointed to oversee wine-making. The result has been a dramatic upturn in quality and critical acclaim.   Figeac is unusual in Saint-Émilion is being situated on gravelly soils. This means a much higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes here. The wine itself is particularly unique, and buyers may come across a number of allusions to this - "lively and very "Figeac". A higher proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, as opposed to the very Merlot dominant Ausone and Cheval Blanc, Figeac, is a cerebral balance of Left-Bank perfumed mint, cedar and cassis, with the wonderfully lush cashmere texture and fruit of Merlot.
