Figeac 2012


Case Format: 3x75cl

Max score: 95.0

Château Figeac is a 40-hectare estate located in the west of the Saint-Émilion appellation. Its identity is defined by the vines used to produce the first wine, where counter to other Saint-Émilion producers, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc make up a majority of the blend (c.70%), with Merlot comprising the rest. Its singular gravel terroir is the only one of its kind in the appellation, allowing for the production of a refined, bold and distinctive wine. With touches of graphite and notes of spicey cedarwood, Château Figeac is a wine infused with biting energy and finesse, with a growing elegance that continues to develop with age. In 2022 Figeac was promoted to the level of Premier Grand Cru Classé “A”, which is only awarded to the most premium wines in Saint-Émilion.

As ever with Figeac, this will benefit from longer ageing than most because of the proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc in the blend. These give distinction, freshness and length to the flavour but also tannin, which needs time to soften. A wine that grows in the glass.

Jane Anson

Far more open than the 2011, with generous blackberry puree and peony floral notes. A little less effortless finesse and balance than years like 2005 or 2010, but this has juice and character, and is a highly successful Figeac. As it opens, you see that the tannins retain some austerity and resistance in them at this point. First year where the blend begins to change, become more reactive to the indiividual vintage - and first year where Frederic Faye took over as director. Michel Rolland arrived as consultant in March 2013, so part of the blending team (and there was also an optical sorting machine for the first time). 100% new oak for ageing, 40hl/h yield, harvest September 20 to October 13.
